new board, thinking ronix
 
Im thinking of getting the new ronix district 137 , im 155lbs and 5'7 would that be a good size range for me . any tips on this.

Yes, that size should be fine. 137-140 would be a good range for you.

That is a perfect sized board for you. I'm probably going to order a Ronix Mana 139 in the next day or too. I wish the one had molded fins but I could go with the one with the new slider fins Ronix put out. Decisions Decisions...

Robert: You could go either way. The district feels smaller than it is (due to its shape) most people size up when they ride it. People who normally ride a 134-135cm board will jump on the 137 and people who ride a 139-140 board will jump on the 142. I'd think you'd be much much happier on the 142.

Kyle: If you want molded fins because you ride cable/rails go with the bolt on slider fins and the sintered base. It'll last longer with the slider abuse.

kristian- that is just what i wanted to hear because I really prefer to go with the one over the mana. The sintered fins are such an awesome invention. I rode a one the first year it came out and probably went through 15 fins on the cable. It got pretty pricey lol

Kyle: Had the same problem with my Frontier, ended up using wakeskate shanks. But the new slider fins are way better.
