Final Choices.

Okay well after doing some intense research I think I've narrowed my choices to about 5.

1. Forum Youngblood Doubledog with Rome 390's
2. Lib Tech Skate Banana with the 390's as well
3. YES Jackpot with Flux sf45's or rk30's (still unsure which one to pick).
4. Forum Destroyer Doubledog with either one of those bindings mentioned above.
5. Burton Custom Flying V With Burton EST cartels. (The last two are available in my local shop.)

Well I use a Skate Banana with RK30s, and it's super fun in the park.

I was thinking about a 148, but all the people at the shop said it was way too small for me. I'm looking at 153-55.

148 is not too small for you at 135lbs. I'm exactly 135lbs myself, and the 148N Skate Banana is perfect for me in the park.

That's sick, my friend actually just got that board! I'm thinking I'll demo the Skate Banana and see what those kinds of boards are like.

I ride Salomon Drift Rocker 148 for park only.
I weight 150 lbs. I works great.

Light and short board with light bindings makes it easier and funnier.
A lot of my friends are sizing down.

-- Better to have tried and failed and not tried at all --

It's a lot of fun (: I ride it with RK30s personally, but there are plenty of other bindings that would work well (390s, Switchbacks, etc)
