iKimshi hey thanks for all the feedback
im thinking about getting a 145
i hate to change the topic of this thread but is there a board you recommend for my ideal riding style: boxes/rails, ground tricks, and not many jumps

DC5R As some have already mentioned, a smaller board would have a smaller swing weight and easier to control. Given your weight, a smaller board would allow you to better load the board and thus, potentially, give you more pop on ollies/nollies.

EmoParkRat i wouldn't go above a 150. I'm 5'10, 120, and wear a size 8 boot and I'm rockin a 147 rome artifact and feel like i could probably go to a 144 and be fine

yea ive heard good things about the skate banana too but im still deciding

Flick Montana Smaller board means more control. You want a longer one in powder so you don't sink.

return2heaven smaller size gives you less swing weight for your 270 on's and 270 off's as well as your airs, i can't think of anything else...

iKimshi what would be the advantages of going smaller?

DC5R A 148 is fine. However, you could go to a 144/145 if you wanted.

jmacphee9 you could go smaller if you wanted too.
