Default Bought a board for cruising carving and occasional jumps.

I'm at a beginner level and i just received a 156 ride agenda as a present. I'm about 120 at 5'7 and was wondering if this board is fine if i just wanna go up and down the slopes attempting to master my carves and occasionally attempt 180 jumps.

At 120lb a 156 is on the long side but if you're a beginner you won't know the difference.

I'm 145lb or so, and ride 150-153 for reference. It's a snowboard, you'll figure it out.

Slow down on the 180 jumps my man.

I may be wrong, & I'm sorry if I am.

Are you a female? If so, that might be harder to handle than a shorter board.

Still totally ride-able, a shorter one just will be a bit easier to maneuver around.

If you are a guy, you need to eat some oatmeal. It sticks to your bones & will bulk you up without making you fat.

If you are a girl, that's right around perfect.

Hi Hanya,

Ride puts the low side of the weight range for the Agenda 156 at 125 lbs (their range is 125 to 175). It is never a good idea to choose a deck where you are outside of the designed range (typically the true range of a deck is around 50 lbs). Ideally you would be centerred in the designed range. Since you have not yet ridden the deck, are you able to exchange it for a better size? If you can, you really should. The 152 is designed for 100 to 150 lbs and will suit you much better provided that it is also a good match for your foot size....which brings us to...What is your foot size?

Thanks!
