Default Burton Blunt

Hey guys so my friend is selling his Burton Blunt 150 board with Rome 390's for $200 and I was thinking about buying it off him.
I've been riding since I was 10 but never really knew the specifications of boards and etc.
So my question to you guys is, would this board be appropriate for my weight, height, and riding style?
I'm 145 lbs. 6'2", I ride about 70% park and 30% freestyle. I ride east coast, NC, SC, and VA mountains. I'm about to move up to Appalachian and will be riding as much as possible so I'm looking at buying my own complete.
Is a 150 too small for me?
Any input is appreciated, thanks!

I'm 5' 11" and wouldn't ride a 150. I like to ride smaller boards, but I use a 154... I did just pick up some Rome 390's.. Haven't tried them out though but anxious to.

yea you'll be fine, weight is much more important factor in board size. you'll be fine on a 150 for park. $200 seems like a really good deal to me. i just bought last years 390's for $150, so $200 for board/binding is cheap.

Yeah I'm just worried about it being too small for an all around board but I mean the price is just soo good
I'm not sure what year it is, Most likely the 2009
Thanks for the replies guys

at the very least, you can salvage those bindings and get an all mountain/freeride board and throw them on later. The 390's are a great binding.

I'd steer away from a 150, im about 6'0, and i ride a 158. However, if you're comfortable on it that's what matters.
