height means next to nothing him being a 140lbs he will be fine of a 152....actually for freeriding mainly thats damn near perfect size for him

Dawg Catcher cheapest i found an agent on ebay for was 289 for last years model so i wouldnt say you would lose alot of money if any at all mind you thats a 15 sec ebay search

roma 152 is too long but it's not dramatic at all. Keep it, if you sell it on ebay you will lose a lot of money it's not worth it

Dawg Catcher ah well the weight thing is important although right now im rocking a ride ruckus 142 junior board im 105lbs though.

Well, I asked all the shop guys to show me every pair of size 7 or smaller boots they had and this is all they could come up with:

Ride Orion M
Burton Tribute
Salomon Solace
32 Prion
32 Exus

If I were more a more confident man I would probably be able to rock a pink and green woman's boot but the black woman's boot I tried did not fit me.

but for real i would consider going down in board size. keep in mind im a girl and i only ride a 148 even being 3" taller so i would consider going 151 at the max maybe even smaller.
I wanted to get a shorter board at like 150 but it was only available at 152 so I checked the site and 140 lbs was in the middle of the recommended weight class so I bit. I am considering reselling it on ebay or something since I cannot return it but I definitely will look into a shorter board for my second board which would probably be more of a park only board.

If you did have to go with Women's boots you're not a 7, you'd be a 8 or 9 womens
Thanks for the info Jenzo, I probably will get the Prions and superfeet since it's the safest bet for now. I just can't help but want more. I guess I can use them till next season or so and if I happen to travel out of state I'll be able to try on some Salomon F22s in size 7.
