Thumbs up I will help!

I have the K2 jibpan 158 (07-08) model, and it is great! But that will be out of your price rage. I recomed, for you the K2 Vandal or the K2 Format(149or 153). If you can find last years model it will be cheaper. The vandal will be less expensive, but easer to ride.

What level of riding are you on, and I can tell you even better.

Thumbs up Park rat eh?

I did not think of that, the burton punch sounds like it would be pefect for you. Just make sure you like it before you get it!



And I called you a park rat beacause I am not realy into the park thing. I'm more of the down-hill all-mountain kind of guy!

Where do you ride?

You'd probably want a board thats about the length of your chin to the ground.

Exclamation Warning!!!

Hey dued! You can not ride a 158 I have a 158 and it is perfect size for me for all-mountian, and I'm 6"1'!!!!!!!

Look, if you ride park you want something that will come up to about the bottom of your neck.

To your chin would be to big and to heavy!

Write back, and see what you think.

Please don't listen to anyone who tells you where the board should come up to on your body. My board is a 165 and comes up to my collar bone. It has very little bearing on board size.

The 148 would probably be ok for you, but I'd try riding it before buying it. I'm not a park person, but I know you're going to want a small board for that. Try different sizes so you don't have to ask what size you need. You need to know before you buy. It's completely personal preference.
