Hi I'm 5 3" and 150lb and not sure which size to get, I was thinking the 148 or 152, I currently ride a 150. I would say I was an intermediate rider, and just looking for a good all round board really? Any suggestions?

the Va Va Voom has a longer effective edge; what this means is that the 148 rides like a 153 (k2 says you can drop up to 5cm from what you normally ride for the VVV) if the 150 works fine for you, then there should be no issues with the 148. the 148 maxes out at 170lb as well. but if you want an all-around board, look into k2 duchess or k2 fling. the VVV is more of a jib board (which is why it's wider and has that longer effective edge) but it's surprisingly stable when bombing down hills. but honestly i find the fling or duchess better for all around riding, and more fun!!
