Thumbs up Board size question

i'm currently looking at the Rome Factory rocker either in a 149 or 152. currently i have a salomon drift 159. im 5 10' and weigh 135. this board was to big for me it was hard for me to try to butter around on. is the 149 going to be to small for me? i like to hit the jumps and rails. im trying to learn more tricks over just bombing down a mountain which was easy on my 159. i was looking at the 149 more ,but i thought i would ask on here before i spent the money.

Both the 149 and 152 will work. The 149 might feel softer at your weight.

A 159 for a 135lb-er is huge. You want something mid flex in the 150 range if you're thinking about park/jibbing. And if you're just starting jumping, meaning you probably won't be hitting anything bigger than 15-20ft you could go smaller.

I know you already have decided, but you would for sure still be able to hit good jumps on a 149 at your weight.
