New Setup HELP!

How's it going everyone! I'm kinda new to this forum. My name is Sam and I've been riding for couple months now. I'm not that of a newbie as a rider though.

So I already got a Mountain/freeriding board but now I need a park board because the one I have is a Ride Mechete 155 CM's.

I'm 5'7 and weigh 158 and might be gaining couple more pounds (bulking). I really wanna get the DC Mens Ply Torstein Horgmo Pro '13 Ply 150.5, Mul. if it would help me progress at the park but not so sure if 150.5 would be good enough considering my weight.

Thank you! much appreciated.

I usually go smaller in the spring, I'm sure it will be fine.

But there probably isn't anything wrong with your old board? Correct?

I buy what's available for cheap.

Sick of paying high prices, I shop on Craigslist.

I just got a brand new option deck with new Burton bindings & new Salomon boots for FREE

They were also giving away a mint wakeboard with boots & bindings.

So I grabbed that as well

One stop shop.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

My Ride Machete has been used 3 times. So yes, it's kinda brand new. It's 155 CM's and I felt heavy while airing and popping nollie 360s. When I tried it last month it felt too big, heavy, and stiff for parks.

And dang you got a load of stuff for free lol.
