i used the k2 www cambered board last year and loved it! Awesome board all around. not only was it great in the park, it held up really well down groomers at high speeds and also in waist deep pow. Even though it wasnt a rocker, it had plenty of flex and pop (learned how to butter and do ground tricks on this board). the main reason why i bought the board last year was because of the price too. I bought it at the snowboard convention for like $100 brand new. great deal for a great board! My k2 was a 155 and im 5'11. hope this helps bruh

You can't really base size on your height, but more on your weight. how much do you weigh? and also, if you got the cambered version, you should be fine on booters. If you do want to do big booters and rail/jibs, check out the capita stairmaster extreme.

I agree with hodgepodge, weight matters more than height. Also, I wouldn't use the WWW on big booters, but for smaller jumps, you shouldn't have a problem.

as long as you are good at jumping you can def take a softer board off larger jumps. Just try to land centered as much as possible.

Too Fast!
