Default Burton Nug 142 or 146?

Hi,

I am looking to buy the new 2014 NUG.

I am currently riding the 2012 - 148 Nug and i think thats a little big as im only 68kg.

I mainly ride it as an all mountain board and love that i can throw it around and still have stability.

Would jumping to the 142 be a too bigger step or should i settle on the 146?

Thanks

I am not too sure that there is any hard and fast rule as to what size you "should" be riding, i am 5'11" and weigh 95kg and quite happily ride a small 153, yet at other times i have ridden a friends 165 and not had any issues, if you are comfortable on a board, and it suits you, then ride that...

I would probably look to "test" something like what you are thinking or borrow a friends, etc to see how it feels for you. If you are really certain you want to buy, then i would not think about such a big change though, the 146 would probably be more of a sensible choice.

But i am no expert, this is just what i would do...
