looking at sizing lib trs narrow
Sorry if im hijacking.
looking at a 2016 TRS narrow .
I ride a 148 length currently and happy.
This board has a 23.7cm waist width. this is were my concern lies.
I have a size 9 boot (a burton ion which claims -1 size profile though I don't know how true that is)
its 9mm less waist width than my current ride which I have no drag issues using.
Will I suffer drag and regret this purchase.
I feel the 151 will be a better match in width but to be honest ive got a tempting deal on a one off 148 narrow and do like riding small

I'm currently in the process of buying my first board. I'm 5'9 and 78kg, I have a specific board that I'm after and the weight limit for the 149cm is 55-80kg, I've tested a 149cm board numerous times on an indoor slope and found it ok to ride both normally and freestyle and when learning on the slope I used a 151cm as they didn't have any 149cm.
I'm wanting the board more for freestyle anyway and have heard that a freestyle board is best to be slightly smaller even though I've been recommended a 153cm-157cm board but that seems a lot larger tan what I've used before. So I was wondering if it would be ok for my height and weight to ride a 149cm?

First of all, sorry if my English is bad, I'm from Quebec..
So yeah, I really really want to buy the new K2 Wild Heart snowboard, which is perfect for me because it's an All-Mountain Freestyle board and he fits perfectly with my bindings so I wouldn't have to change them. The only problem is that this board only exists in 152CM and I'm 152 CM too.. I usually ride board that are around 146CM.. Is 6CM bigger would do a huge difference ? It this going to cause me trouble to ride in the park and do rails?

Thanks for the detailed post. But I've got a question.
The majority of sizing charts I've seen suggest that the size range for 200-210 pound folks is 158 cm -165 cm. Your chart says:
"200 to 250 lbs (91 to 113 kg) = 165 to 180 cm"
Why the difference? Do you think you're onto something that most folks aren't keen to yet (like the height jazz you mentioned in your post)? Or is your chart geared toward something more specific whereas other charts (evo, house, etc) are more generic?
PS...I'm 6'1, 205, size 13 boot and I'm a beg/int all mountain type. I figured my perfect fit would be 161-162 wide, but I'm not finding a lot of those sized boards for sale (seeing far more 159w and 165w). So I was wondering if I'd feel comfy with a 165w even though it's on the high end (of the "other guys" charts).
