Question 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!

Brian

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

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
