Advice on a new board.

Hey guys,

Just to start with I'm about 5'10, 165lbs and have a boot size of around 9.

I've been riding a Gnu Carbon Credit 156 with Rome S90's which has been great. I just use it as an all mountain board.

The problem I have is that I swapped boards with a mate the other day. He rides a Rome Artifact Rocker 150. It was weird at first but after a while I started having so much fun on it.

It got me thinking that I'd like to buy just an all out park/jib board.

I know a Rome Artifact won't be great at doing everything, like going fast and on the ice but I figure I have the Carbon Credit for that. I just want something that's really playful that I can have a ball on doing small jumps (and I mean small) and ground tricks.

I've found a 153 Rome Artifact rocker with Cartel bindings for a pretty good price. Just wondering if that would be a good size for me or if I should go something smaller?

Any advice would be great thanks guys. I did a search and found the K2 WWW is also very popular along with the Arbor Draft.

Thanks,

Grylls
