Default Torn on Board Size

Hello friends, so I have an all mountain board, but now that I live in Colorado, I am looking to buy my first park board. I'm set on getting the 2011 Ride Kink, but size is a problem. I am 5'6" (5'7" on a good day) 150lbs. and done growing. I've been considering the 147 but am starting to second guess the 152 as a more conservative choice. Any suggestions?

Hi Gies,

What is your foot size?

both would work but you'll be more comfortable on the 152, and the extra length wont really hurt anything. As wired asked, if you have large feet 11+ look into wide boards

Hi Gies,

You are perfectly centerred on the 152 in terms of weight range (125 to 175) and foot size. In terms of board fit, it gets no better than that!

Happy riding.
