Size ? i ride a burton custom 158 and very happy with it. i am 5.10 and weigh 182pds. i was considering a smaller board for park and resort and basically learn to jump, rails etc. Do you think i should go for a 153 ?
At 182 Lbs, I would suggest going with the 156 as the smallest size. The core is profiled to be a little thinner in the smaller size to accommodate that persons spec's. The 153 would be fun, but more susceptible to breaking. Besides, the 156 has BTX (Banana Tech & Magnetraction) which almost makes it like you're cheating when it comes to jibbing!
I would agree with Dan, however if you are going to be spending a lot of time jibbing rails and that will be your priority, a 153 will allow you to press better.
