I'm 5'9 165-170lbs size 10 feet. Should I buy the 153 or 156. In traditional cambered boards I ride a 157 ride society and a DH with 5-6 out of 10 flex. For a few years I was on 158's. I like to spend half the day in the park and half the day free riding and hitting natural features at keystone. Part of me worries about stability on big jumps. I land about 95% of my 900's and 80% of 1080's I try. I like the idea of a small easy to easy to manuver board. maybe I could learn some new tricks.
Well i mostly jib and im 160lbs and ride a 153 so if i were you id go 155 for sure.... because it will be the more stable at speed then then the 153 and at your weight it will be perfect for jibbing too. The 155 is the perfect size for you... hoped that helped
Go for the 156.
I ride a lot of Keystone and the extra length will give you some stability going high speeds on the Keystone hardpack. The board is pretty playfull and the extra length wont slow you up.
if you can spin 900's and and 1080's why are you asking..... you should know your body and personal preference. This is a medium flex board with rocker comon man.
