I know it's all personal preference but i'd like to hear your opinions. Whats the shortest length I can go for a jib specific regular camber board at 180lbs.

TIA

I was kind of in same position recently. My weight ranges from 170 to 180. i just got a 154 rome garage rocker. I was looking in 152 to 155 range. i have ridden a 157 last few years and wanted something a bit smaller.

I ride a 154-155 in the park and I'm around 185. My jib boards over the years have ranged from 151 to 154 with no issues. I could have def went smaller.

Depends on the boards flex and camber profile. If you're looking at some of the slightly stiffer full camber decks, sure downsize to a 150. If its softer and full reverse, downsize maybe to 154.

Thanks for the great info.
I've decided to pick up a 150 cambered and a 157 rockered/hybrid for some variety. I'll post pics soon

Ugh the Boneless is weak. It's a five ply snowboard trying to be a skateboard it needs to be built up. I cracked the tail on one first day out.
No shit.?. I read yer review on the artifact, thinkin of goin that route for next jibber. was intrigued by the boneless but wondered about the limited size, good to know.
