Default Bigger board for park???

Okay, I'm a boarding noob and i'm looking at the ride kink 159 (i ride a lot of park). I usually ride a 154 but since park boards are way easier to flex so should I get a 159? I understand the general rule of thumb is to use a smaller board for easier jibbing, railriding and buttering, however I was looking to also use it for booking it down groomers so would a bigger board suit my needs?

Well i would definitely say a 159 is really big for your weight. My buddy rides a 150 for his all mountain deck and he is heavier than you by 15lbs. I ride a 159w for park and im 200lbs just to give you some perspective.

You can ride whatever you like but i would drop you down into the low 150s. If you are in the usa there are tons of cheap decks out there right now that will fit you better than a 159.

If you list where you ride, shoe size, and what you want to do it will be easier to give advice.

Thanks for the advice but I don't think there are any cheaper prices for any board than 10 bucks for a 159 ride kink. On craigslist as gently used, hes including a dakine board bag with it so the total is 12 bucks.

This is a troll! I wouldn't trust my ASS to a bench made from a $10 board!

I'll pass on pics of the ass. If you want to post pics of the board, that'd be alright.
