Default 159W Park Pickle too big???

Hi, i was wondering if i should look into buying a smaller board. I'm 6 foot and weight 140 lbs, more or less, and I always ride the park. The board i have right now is a 159W park pickle from gnu, after i took it out a couple times, i noticed it was a little big and heavy. On flat ground i can do a 180, that's about it. I want a good jib board that's all around fun. One that has good flex and i can whip it around easily. Would, let's say a 154 or 152 make a noticeable difference? Would it be worth it? Because i bought this board in dec and idk if i should buy a new one. I was thinking the 154 banana magic from lib tech.

Wow. 159W for 140 lbs is way too big. Weight wise 152 would've been fine, but because of your height I think 154 would be better.

Thanks, ya the dickhead who sold it to me said it was based on your height. Then i got home and did some research and found out weight also contributed.

Personally i think the 150 is likely the right size for you
