yeah you'll definitely notice that it is small for you. it's not really a rip off in my opinion but it's small for you. you should definitely get a board around 155 to 158. Damn if only you needed a park board i could sell you my blunt.

well on ebay the buy it now for this board is $199.95 but then you gotta add about $20 bucks S/H so it comes out to like $225 with taxes and what not.

So with that said, its not a bad deal.

Your friend is deffinitly not "hooking it up" with a deal but your not getting ripped either (assuming its in good condition, the boards I mentioned on Ebay are new)

I think size-wise you'll be fine

Personally, I hate buying things from my friends cause things get sticky if the item turns out bad or something goes wrong.

I say you take into consideration that forum board or something from that site, siick deals on there, get the size you want, style you want, and rock your own steeze.

What he said, your pants are going to be overtop of 90% of your boots anyways. Fit is everything.
