I'm just under 5'7 and usually weigh around 145 lbs at this time. Thinking about getting the Roxy Envi and wondered if I would be alright on a 147. I do some powder, the occasional jump, but mostly groomed (urgh). Right now I really want to get a handle on tree runs, since that's where the good snow is, and thought a shorter board might help my turns. Any input?
my wife is 5'7 about 130lbs and she rides a dc biddy 143. Now she is still a beginner and isn't doing tree runs but the boards suits her great, she loves it. I guess i was just pointing out that a 147 wouldn't be too short for you.
If you want a board for powder/trees, check out the 152 Jones Hovercraft. It hits the groomers pretty hard and is the most fun snowboard I've ever ridden in trees. I'm 5'3, 138lb and my other boards are 155 & 157.
