Now I get it, you never learned how to press. Its a press, not a lean. Start there.
The Hero of past was a jibstick. It's got squeezebox now making it a solid choice for all park goodness. It's a Burton I endorse.
Get what you want, people don't seem to want to listen to me when I give them advice on jibsticks here. I basically hit jumps just to know how a board jumps, other than that I jib.
If you're really worried about all this, get a 152 Nitro Subzero or Signal Park Rocker. If you can't jib those, quit or go demo a cambered board till you learn to press that. Then you also have a board that is capable of cruising the mountain or hitting pow if the occasion rises. Recently been on the Rocker in that size, surprisingly rideable for that crazy rocker. If you're on a small hill most your days this thing is a blast.
If you're dead set on sub 150, do not go to the 144. That will negatively effect your jibbing as you will have no nose or tail to balance on.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
