Hi I am high schooler looking for a new board. I want an all mountain since I outgrew my last one. I am 5'2" and about 120lbs and I talked to an arbor rep and he suggested the arbor draft 143. Any advice if this board would be good for all-mountain; I know its a mainly a jib board but since I am smaller the rep said I would not have a problem. Also I am looking at a 144 lobster

......no...

That is way too small...


I put 100lb girls on all mountain 143's. Not 120lb guys on 143 jib boards. If you want an all mountain board you will hate that thing.

If you're looking for an all mountain board look for a 150 K2 Raygun, 151 Ride Wildlife, Flow Era 150, Arbor Westmark 150, or a Signal OG Flat 151.

have you ever ridden a reverse camber board? Its usually good to ride a few different board profiles, once you figure out what you want it really narrows down your search

I weigh 145. The other day I was crusing around and jibbing a 156. Hell when I was your size and age I learned park on a stiff cambered board. Small for me then was when I got on my friends 51 Weapon.

For a one board quiver 150/51 is what you should be riding.

Okay thanks for the advice I really appreciate it, nivek and Logan I have narrowed my options down to a 150 westmark, signal 151 og flat or a capita doa 152

Considering a 150 salomon villain but I think it would be too soft.
