Exclamation Quick Question

154cm K2 World Wide Weapon 2013

Im 6'2, 160 ish, Riding it as a Park board only though

I got a great deal on one, is 154 too small for a 6'2 160lbs?

I would rather get a 156, but sold out, getting this one brand new for 230$
So its a steal, but 154 is the only problem, as a strictly jibbing board i think i can hold out on a 154, but just wanted some advice from more experienced riders out there. Will the 154 be too flexy aswell, considering it is a park noodle? All and any answers will help!

Not sure on the softness, but I am around 155lbs and am currently on a 153. Board length is fine to me, I was even considering downsizing to a 148.
Not sure if 2cm would make much of a difference.

154 Is fine for your weight, a little on the short side but not bad as a park board. I'm 5'7" 175 lb, ride a 159/160 for freeride, and a 156 for park/play.

2 cm isn't going to make or break the board.

I am 5'9 190lbs and I use a 154 as a jib stick....personal preference trumps what you "should" be riding, especially when you are only slapping it against steel rails. I do find it a touch short on some park jumps tho....

Should be ok, or just buy the 157 that is on dogfunk for that price....

yeah i just read that they do the jib tip and tail, which give you approx 5cm extra surface length so you can technically go down about 5cm, and i used to ride 159 for all mountain, so i think the 154 will be perfect.

both my 'park' and my 'jib' boards were sold out in the size i wanted, so i went a size down... probably a good move, i love them both. i'm sure you'll be set!
