Default Shortest jib board for 180lbs

I know it's all personal preference but i'd like to hear your opinions. Whats the shortest length I can go for a jib specific regular camber board at 180lbs.

TIA

I was thinking a 154 would be ideal but is 150 pushing it for my weight?

I was kind of in same position recently. My weight ranges from 170 to 180. i just got a 154 rome garage rocker. I was looking in 152 to 155 range. i have ridden a 157 last few years and wanted something a bit smaller.

I ride a 154-155 in the park and I'm around 185. My jib boards over the years have ranged from 151 to 154 with no issues. I could have def went smaller.

Depends on the boards flex and camber profile. If you're looking at some of the slightly stiffer full camber decks, sure downsize to a 150. If its softer and full reverse, downsize maybe to 154.

Check out the Rome Shank. You can ride it in a 49 and it'll be fine.
