Hey, I'm a 6'0" 150 pound (give or take)...
Hey, I'm a 6'0" 150 pound (give or take) male. I've got a 159 08/09 skate banana and it's great but i feel like i can't work it around as much as I want to. I mostly ride park, including rails boxes and jumps (i live in NJ so that's all there is), but i take it out to powder whenever i can. I'm between a 151 and a 154. Any help would be awesome.
159 is way too big for you that could be part of the problem... you should be down around 151 for a park board
go with the 51 if you want a playful board for park riding and ground tricks.
will also work in pow.
i'm 5ft8in and 150 pounds like you. i rode last season a 52 banana and a 54 trs btx. the 54 was a little stiff in my op. got a 51 trs btx this year and its perfect. butterable but also stable a speed. you should size down and got with the 52 banana or the 51 trs. 54 trs will be to stiff to be playfull. sell your 59. its def to long.
id go 151 for park and 154 if you do a lil bit of everything
