Board length question
 
Hi,

I'm 5'8 160lb.

What would be an ideal size for me for all around?

I will be going to the park 95% of the time.

I was looking at 151 but someone said always go higher than lower?

I'm the same as you, pretty much park all day.

I'm 5'10 150 and I just bought a 152 for park. I think 151 would be good, I'd say the lowest you could go and ride comfortably would be 147. Longest for park, dunno 55 maybe. I rode a 155 in the park two days ago and it wasn't too hard to whip around.

I would go for 147-150 for you. i'm 5'5 and weigh 155 but i'm all muscle..not fat..lol and i ride a 148 noodle (signal park rocker with rome 390s). i'm in the park 90% of the time but i love to hit every natural feature i see on the mountain and when there's only flats...i love messing around with ground tricks.

for me..when in doubt, go shorter. less swing weight unless you're a jump guy hitting 40ft booters
