Default Does banana size count??

hi guys, tried to post then it deleted my message because it said I wasn't logged in even though I was (FFS) this is the short version

I am 5'11 170lbs had a K2 anagram 158 - not nice to turn on imo,

gf bought me an SB 156 is it too short bearing in mind that I am more free ride oriented, should i swap for 159 as these boards apparently turn on a dime......

point 2 - related - want to return the favour (so to speak) to my wonderful lady

she is 5'2 and a half and 115lbs she likes the burton feather 149 as it is blue!!!! - but I am worried that 149 is too long even for someone whose preferences are mainly cruising no park etc ... any input is greatly appreciated.

thanks a lot in advance peeps

the size of a board really comes down to personal preference. some people like bigger boards, some like smaller ones. for example when i was 13 i was 5' 4" and about 120lbs and i rode a 153, meanwhile one of my buds who was about the same height and maybe a little lighter rode a 142... its really about how the board feels to you

so anyway its really up to you. if it was me id get the 158 but thats just because i like a bigger board...

im 5'10 i have the SB 154 and i really like it. I dont do as much freeride but i find it fine keep in mind the bannana + magna traction really does make turning easier

What do you weigh? I'm beginning to come to the view that I should use my banana for freestyle learning and furthering and then at some point get a longer stiffer board for dedicated freeriding.....
If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?
