That isn't too big man.

That size sounds perfectly fine for you.

The rust is nothing, unless its eating through the metal (99.9% chance its not).

what size is it? and the rust is probably just superficial. run a light gummy stone over it and that will clear it up.

You won't know that until you ride it

It's most likely nothing, it'll go away on your first run.
In case it is really bad you can always return it and ask for a new one.

wernersl Being a Never Summer fan, have you considered something like the Proto? More of a mid-flex but a true twin, built like a tank and will take you from all mountain to pow to the park. Something to think about. Shortest they make is a 152. Dont know if that would be too long for your feather weight.

xsea I ride a 153 CC and I'm about 5"6, 130 pounds. For me its really forgiving and fun though at higher speeds it feels kind of sketchy.

phony_stark You and Derp are both right.

I love my GNU CC, but it has become my early season board/night time icy shred board. I have since moved to other boards.

However, at $280, that's a fucking fantastic price for a board that will, pretty much, do everything.
