I'm 5 ft. 1 1/2 in. and I weigh 125 lbs. Right now, I ride a 143 cm snowboard. Would it be okay to drop down to the 139 cm for the K2 2009/2010 VaVaVoom Rocker?
i'm 5'1, and weigh 120. i ride a k2 147 cm skyla board. Its amazing, and I love the length of my board. 139 is definately possible, especially if you'll be riding park and want quick and easy turns, but if you're wanting speed and just cruising down a mountain, don't go that short.
i can't wait to get this board...im so excited. lucky enough to be able to get this board super cheap...like WAY cheaper than this site is selling it for ...but hey, its still a good deal! i ride a k2 151 twin directional and i ordered a 148 in this board...can't wait to ride it and feel the difference of the rocker.

is this board the women's version of the k2 parkstar?
No, it's the womens version of the WWW - the World Wide Weapon
Butter like its hot
If youve been fantasizing about what it'd be like to ride something as flexible as a noodle, then this board is like a dream come true. Not only do ya look crazy stylish on boxes and rails but it rides great too. I highly reccomend this board for anyone who likes to goof around in the park or just goof around in general. It gets my vote for best board ever =]

i mostly ride the pist, (some smaller jumps and a little bit of offpist).
would this board be something for me?
i know its supposed to be a parkboard but you said it was pretty stiff, and i've heard it works great all over?
This is great but is intended to ride well in the park but is softer for butters. Look at the Aurdu or the Ecopop from K2, those will be more efficient boards to help you toll up to the whole mountain.

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!!

hi, im 5'8 and 147lbs. i have just been sold a 143 but im not convinced.....should i have got a 148. im intermediate and will be messing around on piste rather than parks and still trying to build confidence at speed.... help!
hey mate, im 5"7 and ride a 152, in the parks at an intermediate level you should be riding something like this.
I agree with the person above. Im 5'7 and about the same weight. I just rode a 143 vavavoom and loved it. coming from a 151 this board was perfect for playing in the park and i could feel a huge difference. today there was feet of powder after a huge storm and the 143 did perfect in the trees and powder. perfect board. you will learn a lot on this board

I'm 5ft tall and weigh around 90lbs - 95lbs. I've currently got a 143cm that I've had since I started learning. I'm now at a more intermediate level and and starting to learn to do some trick and really want a shorter board to play around with. So I'm looking at the 139cm - do you think this will be ok? In addtion, I won't be spending all my time in the park and want to know if this board will be fine for general riding.
So, this board is right up your alley. I think you should go with a 139...shorter is more playful...for many reasons...less weight all around will help you butter the muffin, slide some boxes, ollie etc...
The cool thing about this board is its sidecut: Sidecut comes down to how much edge touches the snow at the same time. Shorter boards have less snow contact, and longer boards have more contact. More contact equals more stability....ie "riding the whole mountain" or cruising groomers etc.
This board is designed to be ridden a little smaller. It has the "edge contact" of a bigger board, in smaller sizes.
I'll never forget the first time a rode a short board....I felt like weights had been lifted off my feet!! you will love it.
Hope this helped, tessa. happy shredding!

hey i am 5'4" and 130 pounds. I would say I am more of an advanced rider but i am torn on which size I should do. Would going up to a 148 be too much board for me?
It really depends on your preferences, but if i was you i would go short because i like a flexy short board, but i really don't think that the 148 will be to much board for you considering its almost the exact size that is suggested for you on the sizing chart.
Butter Me Up!
I got this board at the end of last season, and I can't believe how much I love it. Coming from the stiffer side of snowboards, I just wanted something fun and jibby to play with, and I totally got it in this board. The rocker is amazing and makes it not only super nice to get jibby with, but really floaty in the fluffy stuff as well. It held up at speed amazingly well on the trannies (I was surprised) and is so light and poppy I got way more height than I've ever gotten before. Not so much for laying down carves on groomers, although it can happen ( I found it just takes some more oomph to get the board up and over the edge), but totally made for the park-rats/future pros in us. :)
I never liked K2 boards before because they always felt way too wide on my size 5 foot, but this one rocks.
Be ready to have to wax it a lot...the extruded base is worth it though.
im 5'2 112llbs.... 139 a good choice???

Yeah, you'd be set on taking advantage of this deal- , good sized park board for you.
Should be fine. My wife is 4'11" and 110 pounds and that is what she rides. She loves it.
I'm the same exact height and weight, I ride a 143. Depending on how long you've been riding. This board is soft and bends really easily...you would probably be ok with the 143, even if you are new to riding. On a 139 you have to be concerned with ending up with a stance too narrow, where if you bump up to the next size, you could play with it all you wanted and never really run out of options. Also, once you start doing pressure tricks and getting jibby, you don't want to have to worry about falling off the end of the board all the time. Get something that you'll advance into, not something that is perfect right now.
