Salomon Salomonder...148 or 151?

I'm looking to get a Salomon Salomonder, but really can't decide between the 148 and 151.
I've been riding a Gnu street series 152 for 2 seasons and love it, but am just up for a change.

I mainly ride park/street, and the occasional powder day. I never really hit any big kickers, I hate that sh*t!
I'm tempted to go with the 148, seeing as I just want something super fun for the park and manoeuvrable, and I also have a 155 DC PBJ to use for pow. But on the other hand I don't want the 148 to feel really out of control at a little bit of speed...

I'm about 5'11, 62kg, U.S size 11 boot.

I'd really appreciate some opinions, and if anyone owns or has ridden a Salomonder please speak up also!

the 148 is a 247 waist width. That doesn't give you a lot of extra space.
Small boards are fun and you probably wouldn't feel that out of control unless you are flying down some big hills.

Thanks for the reply. You reckon I'm gonna have problems with the waist width on it? I'll be riding about a 22/23inch stance, 15/-15 angles.

My Gnu I'm riding now has a 250 waist width and I've never had a problem with it.

I dont know. You would probably be right on the edge. With the stance you ride it probably will be alright but again you are probably cutting it close.

I have a size 12, so can't compare exactly but I rode a board with a 249 Waist width for a long time. Most of the time i didn't have any problems with it but if i really got into a turn i would wash out from toe or heel drag.

Hmmm that's a tricky one. What sort of stance/angles were you riding?

Well that is one problem i know for a long time i wasn't riding a 15/-15 but toward the end i was haha. I just can't remember if i still had issues once i turned my stance out. I suppose I still have the board and could toss a binding on it and see what it looks like.

alright well i got some pics for ya.
The footprint of the binding does not hang over the edge in any place. These are union contacts.
The stance is roughly set at a centered 23"



Might actually work out.
