Default Stepchild JP Walker size

Hello,

I'm looking to get a Stepchild JP Walker for next season or late this season but I'm just unsure of what size to get. I'm looking for a board that I can use for mainly jibs. So I was think to get the 147 with RETT but think it might be too small for me. I currently have a 157 Un..Inc and a 153 Stepchild Simon and am 135lbs with a size 8.5 boot.

What do you guys think will it be able to handle just riding around the park, mostly rails, and down to the lift at my size?

Thanks.

U don't weigh very much so i'd say u could ride a 147, but it all really depends on your height, u forgot to give that.

What the hell are you talking about! It depends VERY little on height.
I think a 147 or a 149 would both be good for you. Maybe the 147 if this will be your jib board.

wrong, its all about weight, ig your 6'8, but only 140, a 167 would be super super stiff.but a 147 would be about right, its weight for the flex.

I know it's just that he said he rides a 157 right now, so going down to a 147 would be a huge change.

meh, i believe the jp walker has a smaller tip and tail so a 147 is really more like a 152ish size woth a lower and shorter swing weight.but im NOT positive, so dont quote me.but i think he will be fine, he will get used to it in a few runs
