gnu park pickle 2011 forest bailey pro model size 150 too short?

Hey all,

You think a 150 for the above mentioned board is too small for me? My profile: 6', 1", about 165-170 lbs, boot size, 11. I plan on using it for local mountains only for all-mountain and jibbing....the specs on the gnu website state that the waist width is about 24.9 which i think i can get away with...i'm used to smaller boards, but am maybe thinking this is too short for me..the next size up is 153 which i think might be a better choice, but wasn't sure how much of a difference that would make when trying to butter or spin...

any thoughts is appreciated, thanks.

Ya, a 150 is going to be way to short for you.... I'd say 153-156 really..

If you ever plan to hit powder, be prepared to work those legs off, leaning back. You'll probably be maxed out on your stance width so you can't slide your bindings back for float.

I personally like to be slightly longer then shorter because you can adjust to a little extra length, but being to short is a motha in pow

150 is a pretty freakin' small board. For your weight I would definitely get the next size up if not bigger. Also, while the board doesn't care how tall you are, at 6'1" your stance could likely put too close to the ends of the board causing you to have carving/turning issues.
