What if you're a 150lb midget? You'd be spread eagle on the right sized board.

Height is still somewhat of a factor. Weight more, yes.

Outside of extreme/fantastical situations an 8pack of inserts covers a pretty broad spectrum of heights

Hey, Don here... wanted to let you know that if you still have it, I'd be happy to exchange it for a different size (I think we might have a rounds in a size you need, if not we could do a killbox which is really similar). We do that all the time; rarely will someone win a deck that so happens to be in their size. Email kyle@echelonsnow.com, and give him a link to this thread .

I actually bought it and its on its way : ). I'm Worried a 152 might be to small for me being 5'11 175 though. I wanted a board for buttering, jibbing and doing small to medium kickers so hopefully a 152 will still handle my size. I'm pumped after reading the reviews about all the pop it had and how good the lite3d base was.

Great! It will do fine (for the purpose you've chosen). Smaller isn't that bad when you're in packed powder/etc.

You'll be fine I hit a 45 foot jump on it at Hood, slayed some jibs, rode pow on it one day, and took it all over Brecks park it's what you're looking for.
