Im 5 10 and like to ride rails mainly and some jumps, should i get the salomon salomander 151 or 154

All depends upon your weight, height is irrelevant because the board will ride and flex based upon your weight, not height. If you're less than 160lbs roughly then 151 and larger 154. Thats what I would do, but I like shorter boards too so there's some personal preference in it too.

This was the first cambered board I've ridden and it is amazing. I heard all the rumors that rocker would be horrible at high speeds but it worked amazing. When I first strapped in it did feel very different because of the 4 edges mixed with the rocker. It does most of the work for you and if you carve hard like a cambered board it gets squirrely. It is amazing for park, jibs, bonks, etc..
On my first lap I ollied some snowgun barrels and I was popping a good foot maybe foot and a half extra. It was amazing. It is impossible to catch an edge with this thing.

Horrible board. Do NOT buy
..... or maybe i'm just saying this cus I wanna be the only one at the mountain with this beast. :)
I think i'm in love.
Alright fine, here's the truth.
Great board! First session today. Don't be fooled, this isn't JUST a park board. I rode it all over the mountain, even found a little powder in the tree lines (east coast) and it floated nicely. Despite the rocker's reputation of not performing well at high speeds, I found this board very stable, quick toe to heel, and the edges dug into everything. I had little to no trouble cutting across ice patches. To my surprise, even the extruded base was fast and I haven't waxed it yet. I was passing everyone up on the flats. I'm still getting used to it but I love it. This board definitely has pop too. It's a little stiffer than I was expecting, but not too stiff for butters and presses.
I did alot of research and must've bugged every live chat expert on this site before I decided to go with this board. I considered the youngblood chillydog, skate banana, capita green machine, stairmaster, and some others.. I picked this one because it matched my needs and seemed like the best value for the money. I mean the price is just awesome for all the tech they crammed in it! Very happy with this decision, this board arrived with zero disappointments. Honest.
hey man well both these boards are tights but if your looking to hit some 35-40 ft jumps the youngblood is it. lets say your into rails and not big into jumps and when u do hit jumps there small then the salomon drift rockers would suit u well, its a soft board which could make it too lose for some jumps. hope i helped man
