Park size

ok, so im getting a salomon salvatore sanchez (rockered) for the upcoming season. I am basically a jibber, but i like small/mediums kickers as well. I rode a 147 last season and that fit me fine, but i have grown i couple inchesand idk whether to size up or not. Im 5'9, 150 lbs, and im debating between the 148 and the 151. i am fairly advanced as well. any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

At 145lb I wouldn't even wanna jump anything bigger than 20ft on the 151...

Maybe look at getting the Drift Rocker... Super fun to jib (even in the 154 I rode) but with plenty of pop and grip to make the whole mountain fun.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

i spun 35 footers on my 147 horrorscope, so im not to concerned about that. and idk i think a 154 might be a bit big for riding street, but i will check out the drift rocker thanks!

I'm the same height as you and only a few kilo's heavier and I ride a 151.5cm board, mainly fairly beginner park terrain. 151cm is going to be a bit better all-mtn but realistically a few cm's isn't going to dramatically change your ride. More importantly look at the effective of the boards you're comparing, as most newer boards now have blunted ends which means you can actually downsize 1-2cm from a traditional board and it will still ride the same.
