Park board, smaller?

Yo, I have been riding a Custom X 56 for a while now, want to get a board for park (artifact). Should I stick with the 56 or go 53? Im 5'5" 115-120ish.

I'd say go for a 150ish. I ride a 147 and I'm ~140, but i mostly jib. If you plan on hitting bigger kickers go for about a 150

life IS good.

Since you already have a 56 to freeride, go down in size to something like 47-49ish. I weigh exactly the same as you, and my park board is 149.

Should I go for s/m rome 390's or l/xl, if the l/xl will fit on the 150 artifact that would be chill. Size 9 burton boot.

Go with the one's that fit a size 9 boot. They should have a sizing chart online for you to figure it out with.

If you go with the s/m it'll be a tight squeeze with Burton boots. So I'd probably size up to the m/l if I were you.
