You may find you like a longer board later, don't even trip on that board length it's fine.
^^^Agree. Don't worry about it starting out.

My boy who is about 140-145 started on a 148 hand me down bend like a rubber band board.

After the season was over he did change to a 152 Flow Era I picked out for him.

You'll be fine. Turn it into a jib/park board when you upgraydd.

then again considering your length it probably won't be as big a problem aa for someone with your weight and 5'11 (178cm)+. but length plays a very minimal role.

i wanted to be as nice as possible about this, but it will help you more if i'm honest.

:/

hope you can sort it out!
Don't listen to this clown. He likes to dispense 'advice' despite not knowing what he is talking about.

and who are you? and why are you so butt hurt? still butthurt about the binding thread? every piece of advice i've dispensed so far have been on subjects i do have experience and knowledge from.

just the fact that you're trying to prove me wrong adds to the naivete of your post. you're basically letting your emotions run over good judgement. just don't be mad, we're all friends here.

my first post still stands.

What nonsense. People come to this forum to ask questions, provide advice, exchange information and opinions, etc. That is what makes it a vibrant community that adds value for its members. Unfortunately, your ill-informed statements and posts contribute little/nothing and, in fact, are adding ‘noise’ and potentially confusion. My response was not emotional (although an emotional one would be justified as well), but purely in the spirit of keeping this forum a useful resource.
You are certainly entitled to your opinions, but it is clear that you know fuck-all what you are talking about – as you have amply demonstrated in a number of threads. Your first post may stand, but all the other posters in this thread so far (including some pretty knowledgeable people) disagree with your statement.

Like always it comes down more to the rider than the equipment. Time on the snow is what you should shoot for, your gear won't let you down

This.

Just focus on learning the fundamentals and having fun for now.

better too small and flexible than too long and aggressive for starting out.

you probably won't understand what you're feeling for a few years anyhow.

I agree, your original advice was awful and incorrect.
Try not doing it again.

I weigh 150 lbs and rode a 151 all over Tahoe the last few years. I "should" be riding a 154-156 based on my weight? Sorry, but no, you're wrong, especially when you're giving "advice" to a beginner.

The 151 will be fine for you, OP. Don't stress about it at all, go out and have fun learning to ride.

Anyone who's not butt hurt like the guy a few posts above knows 151 is too short for 75 kg's and isn't recommended unless it's strictly for jibbing. Which is exactly what I stated in my first post.
