What size freestyle board?
 
Help would GREATLY be appreciated!!

Hi, I'm getting a Capita Ultrafear. However, I have no idea which size i should get: the 147 or 151. I weigh about 125 and I'm 5'10, and just turned 17. I'm not really done growing yet so idk if I should go up to the 151 or not. I ride about 75% park and 25% mountain. But I do live on the east coast, so while I'm here, I ride park, and then occasionally take a trip out west and up north to hit the pow. I've been talking to some of the reps on Dogfunk and they all say get the 147, but idk if I should grow into the 151 instead. Lastly, I'm getting a pair of Flux RK30's and I have a size 10 boot, so what size bindings should I get?

Thanks so much for the help!

I'd say buy some high quality protein, workout, and put on some damn weight.

I'm a twig and you're skinnier than me....

Seriously though, get the 151 and work on gaining weight, I'm not joking.

I agree with the Dogfunk reps, get the 147. At your weight the 151 is just too big, and by the time you fill out a bit you will probably want a new plank anyway.

Hahaha trust me I've already tried. I don't really look like a twig, but yeah, I'm smaller.

Ya if you don't think you'll hit the 140's within 2 years, I would go with the 47 also.

All things considered

Try harder... I wish I would've hit it harder when I was younger. Now my life is hectic and busy and it's difficult to open time to workout.

I know you can gain weight though. I dropped from 200lbs to 180 and I'm bigger than I was at 200... I cut all the fat I had and I'm building muscle now. I'm 6'4

Oh, by 2 years I definitely plan on being over 140 lol. Thanks for the help!

Then get the bigger board...

You can always adjust to a slightly longer board in the park, and not really feel it.

But a board that's to short in powder, takes you away from the fun prematurely

If you're really hard on your gear and think you'll want a new board pretty quick, go with the shorter one.

There's a lot of ways to look at it, and it's only 4cm. I would rather be 4cm to long than 4cm to short when it comes to my snowboard

Okay I'm going to try out both at the local shop, thanks so much for the help!
