Default Board Size

Hey Guys,
I'm looking at getting a new board this year and want something that is more freestyle and park usable. I currently ride a burton clash 158. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh about 160. I was looking at around a 154/155. Just curious if I can go smaller for better park performance or what you guys would recommend. Also any good boards on the market for this area or interest. Thanks. Cole

Dropping down isn't going to hurt you for your weight. There's a ton of great boards for what you're looking to do, got a budget in mind?

See if you can find a last years board. But I'd check out the atomic hatchet, k2 darkstar, capita stairmaster, atomic pivot just to name a few.

Its basically a Prospect with ERA tech in it. Slightly stiffer more of a pipe/jump board.
