A 147. I'm 5'10, ~140lbs. It's really short, but it's awesome for jibbing. I can handle it really well freeriding, which surprises a lot of people.

If you have a few bucks to spend and want a pretty good park board that can still freeride well.. Checkout the Never Summer EVO. I just picked up this board as my second board to compliment my Burton Custom I've been riding for 7 years now. I love my Custom but wanted something a bit softer for those days I wanna hangout in the park a bit more. Quality board along with a quality reputation.

Never Summer!

i heard that with the K2 world wide weapon you can ride a size smaller because of some tech in it. Sort of like the skate banana i'm guessing?

Long, Stiff board: speed (i.e. downhill)
Short, soft board: menuverability (i.e. park)

All-mtn board: A mix of both, will take you any where, but excells in none of them.
