Default Just want to make sure I got the right size board

Last season I ended up buying a forum youngblood 155cm. I am 6'1, weigh about 150 and I wear a size 11 boot. I am still learning how to ride and plan to do mainly park in the future granted I become skilled enough. I just want to know if this board will be OK to learn on and ride in the park with in the future?


Thanks for any help.

You shouldn't have that much of a problem. A 155 is a decent length board you may feel a little unstable at first being so tall. I wear a size 11 boot when I started boarding and I was 5'11" weighing 170lbs and I started on a 159.

Is it a WIDE board??

If not, size 11 boots are going to hang over the edge quite a bit on a board that size.

Thanks for all of the replies. And the board was labeled as midwide, the waist is 25.8. Will that be OK?
