I'm 5'4, 130lbs, my current board is a 145 salomon which I've definitely outgrown. It feels super slow. Anyway, I'm debating between getting a 149 or 152. I'm on my way from intermediate to advanced & mostly ride groomers but also like powder & trees. Not interested in park at all. I'm leaning towards 152 because 145 to 149 is not a huge difference. Need suggestions & the consequences of getting something too long.
145 to 152 is a HUGE difference and will totally change your riding experience for the worse...you will have to throw your whole body into carves and although you will be very very fast, you will have little control and not much response and you will tire out super easy. the 149 is just about pefect for you
I ended up buying the feelgood ES 150 with the lexa est binding in large. See my review under that product.
