  1. Hey, noticed Forest rides a 150, was wondering what his height is? Im looking into the Forest bailey pickle and was wondering if a 150 would be too small im 5’10 and weigh 160, thanks, cheers!

  2. Hey Ryan, I have no idea what the stats are on the Forest. You could get away with riding a 150 but the board is going to feel pretty soft and if you hit any jumps the board will be more likely to wash out on you. I would recommend getting something around a 154 at a min.

    yo ryan, I am 5 foot 10 inches I weigh 165 and I am riding a 151 capitia horrorscope. youll have no problem on a 150. Im throwing 7s and 9s off kickers and at first i was washing out a lot but once you understand the board youll have no problem throwing down plus its fun for jibbing with a shorter board. I would give it a go if i were you

  4. Hey ryan, i am 5ft 10 and i have no problem riding my 150 park pickle on jumps, rails, or back country, im sure you will be fine no worries!
