Default A secondary board just for jbbing buttering around?

I've been riding this season with my first board, a nitro team gullwing 157 wide, after renting the board the past 2 years. I found the board nice when high speeding,jumping in the park (trying to:-) or freeriding but it's really too much stiff for buttering and jibbing (my opinion) even with very large feet stance. i wanted to buy another board with only this purpose. I was looking int the signal park, what you guys think? Coul I go for the 154 wide or is it just too short for me? I'm tall 1,85 M and weigh 75 kg. For jibbing is it better to have a shorter or longer board?
Thanks in advance

Dedicated jib board for a size 13 foot, and the gulllwing is too hard to butter? Try something full or part rocker as short as you can get with about a 265ish waist width. You need a true wide board. 150, 154 size is all up to you, especially if this is a dedicated jib board.

You'll need to confirm the waist widths yourself, but Nitro Haze Wide, Skate Banana Wide, Never Summer Revolver the list goes on and on.... most manufacturers should have something for you.

If you really want a jib board, go for a Bataleon Airobic or Capita Stairmaster. Something along those lines...

The signal park is too soft in your opinion?
What about the skate banana?
