hey guys i need some help here. Im 5 8 140 lbs and where a size 9 boot. Im looking for a smaller board than my last one so i was wondering if i would be able to ride to 148 even though its narrow. Or should i go with the box scratcher which i hear is pretty much the same board but much wider. but then would the box scratcher be too wide for a size 9?

A 148 would be pretty small for someone your size. i am 5'10 and 138 and im not going under a 155 this year. i had a 152 skate banana last year and it was perfect for me.

If you want to go that small, I highly reccomend a Box Scratcher. The 148 narrow will be too small (fun still) and could break on you.
The scratcher was made for larger people to ride really fun short boards that spin like mad, but still provide some stability.
