Little Help
 
So i originally ordered a board and then it got cancelled because the inventory was wrong. Ok here goes.

My Stats:
-170 pounds
-5'9
-Type of riding: Im a noob so bunny hill for a few runs then just some simple crusing down the mountain.

*I originally bought a 157w but the Burton site says im a 155. Now the board i got is only offered in either a 154w or 157w, anything after that is too big. Its a Burton bullet (2012) btw.

Anyways, can i get away with a 154 or should i just re-order a 157 again elsewhere? Does it affect the type of riding i plan to do? Like i said for now i just wanna cruise it and ride later on once i get comfortable on the mountain ill most likely get a better board...


Thanks.

should be ok with 154W. what size are your feet?

154 is just fine for your weight. Going longer will just give you better stability when charging the hill and holding those fast carves, but when you get to that skill level you'll probly be wanting to get a new board anyways. :)

Ok sounds good. I'm a 11.5 boot that's why I was considering that board.

True, by then a new more advanced board would be a must.
