I figured people drop the noob on me but been riding for a while, just dont really keep up with the Industry too much.

Right now I ride a 162 wide Head damage and im tired of it. I really hate the feel of wide, long boards and am looking for something that can compensate for my body/boot size and be dope for the park.

Any one have good any experience or selections on something for my size?

Hey -

Try a Rome slash, I really like this board, and the 2009 model is less weight than the '08, which should make this board an absolute killer. It's a wide, so it will handle your foot!

really fun board to ride all over the mountain, its a park board but can handle the groomers, and in my experinence, it goes alright in the trees, powder and steeper stuff.
