Hi, I am 5'11 and 170 lb. I normally ride a 156 skate banana, I bought it for the powder in japan.
I live in AUS and so I am looking to buy a fun board for all the days when the snow is shit and you just want to play around down the hills and through the parks. I dont need a board thats particularly good in the pipe or on jumps 50 foot plus....

Do you think I should go the 48 or 52?

Also do these boards still have a bit of pop or do they feel pretty dead due to the flex?

Cheers!

I would personally go for the 152. I think you'd find a 148 a little sketchy for riding on the hill (even just messing around).

Yeah man just like Justin said go for the 152, ALTEAST. Im basically the same height and weight as you and I ride a 154 in the park. But yes the board is suuuper fun in the park and has good pop. Will not be the best on hard pack or on hits over 40', but on jibbs and lickle features it will be prime
