Default 147, too short?

I just came home from blue mountain resort today and came home empty handed. My 08 154 Burton Dom was stolen from me while I was looking away for a minute (stupid me for not locking it up). Real bummed out T.T

Anyway, I saw a local deal for a used K2 Jibpan and I was wondering if 147 is too short for me.

I'm 5'7"-8" and 145-150lbs - I plan too freeride and start on freestyling soon.

I think you will be fine with a 147. I hate reading board sotlen storys, they just piss me off and make me hate people more, you have to lock your board man or have someone keep an eye on it, I always lock mine and if I see some taking it I will kick their god dam ass!

147 would be fine, really? - I always thought I shouldn't go below 149-150 even if I was planning on freestyle.

Yes, 147 is too small for your purposes with that weight. I'd say 151 would be the lower end, with something in the 151-154 range.

Blue's notorious for board theft.

I'm 5'10", 150lbs. I ride a 147. You'll be fine if you love jibbing, and nothing else.

If you want to hit bigger kickers (35ft+) and freeride, look into something bigger.
