Default K2 Raygun 2012 Sizing help.

Hi, I'm thinking about buying a 2012 K2 Raygun. I am about 5 foot 6 and weigh 130. I am an intermediate level rider and ride all mountain, and am at the park about of a third of the time as i am riding down the mountain. I'm thinking about a 153, but would really appreciate other suggestions. Also I don't want to get one too small because i want to be able to grow into it and use it for at least 2 years.

150-153. 153 more stable, 150 more nimble.

If you are still growing (weight wise) than go for the 153

THanks, if im still growing in hieght too would a 155 be better? Also would a size 10 boot have too much overhang on a regular width board?

Don't focus on height unless you grow to be a giraffe or shrink to be a midget.

Weight is the most important factor when choosing snowboard sizes.

I'm 145 and ride a 150 for goofing off and 153 on my all mountain stuff. If this is a versatile board for you I'd stick with 153. Don't buy something that you MIGHT grow into 2 years from now. Buy for now.
