Park board help.

So guys I've become a park rat like some of you and I'm looking for a board. Right now at 5'10 and 165lbs I'm riding a 2011 burton joystick 155cm. I've been getting into a lot of jumps around 35' and smaller, I feel like 155 is hard for me to spin around and wanted to go smaller. Would it be possible to ride a 149 DC PBJ and still be able to hit 35' or so jumps?

you would be able to hit the jumps but it probably wont be any easier than your 155.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Thanks for the reply man. Well that's what I really wanted to know, I want to go smaller but would going from 155 to 149 kill my riding in any way?

Eh, 149 is jib level sizing for you.

If you want to do jumps, I wouldn't go any less than 154 for your height and weight.

Yeah, the 155 you have now should be just fine for a park board, I'm about your size(5'11" 170) and use 153-157 for everything. You might want to play with your stance and see if you can find one that feels better spinning. On saturday I traded boards with my sister for a few runs, she has a 149 Burton Sterling, it was a great jib board for me but a bit shaky at high speeds and no way I'd try a 35' jump on it, I'd be too scared of breaking her board.
