Default 156...

Hey, I'm 5ft 7, and approx. 140 lbs.
I ride basically all park and jibs, and I've been looking at the '07 156 Capita Stairmaster.. I know it's a little big, but I want the blue color.. Ha, I know it's a pretty lame reason.

So anyways, do you think this will be too big, I figured it would help a little with some all-mountain, and leave some growing room if I don't snap it.. Please leave some feedback.....

Eh for park I'd go smaller at your size. You won't see the colour much anyways it'll be covered in snow and feet

For you size and weight, that is rather big board for park riding.

rather big seems like an understatement, but i like shorter boards...im 5'7 160 ride a 154 and i think its a tad too big for the park..i would say 153 at most for a pure park board at your size..

I'm 6'3 180 and I rocked a 154. I'd say it's too big for you, hehe.
