Default 151 or 154

I need help deciding on what size board to get for all mountain rider. I'm 5'8, 130 lbs, and a size 9 boot. I am torn between a 151 and 154 for all mountain riding. I am between a beginner and intermediate. I am planning on getting a Custom Flying V.

Thanks for the input.

I'm 5'9", 160 and ride a 153 neversummer sl. Different board but I would go with the 151 at your weight. See what type of consensus you get, just adding my 0.02.

I would go with the 151 unless you expect to grow in the next 2 seasons.

I am 6' tall and 140lbs. I ride a 154 lib tech TRS for all mountain and a 151 Bataleon ET for park.

I don't see Burton boards recommended a lot on this forum, bindings and boots are another thing. I find the goodride site helpful to give me a baseline, but check out other posts to make up your mind.

The Good Ride Favorite Snowboards

Seems the Agent Rocker is one of their favorites .
