yes, but he also has about 70lbs. on you.. a 133 is a more common size so you will have a better variety of choices, a 130 is on 3cm shorter its not really a noticable difference...

im 5'10 & 200lb. and i ride a 135....

Well I pretty much have the same stats as you and I ride a 136. I started out on a 130 but found it too small. Alot of it is down to personal preference. I could probably get away with a 134, but personally I like a slightly longer board.

I'm 150 lbs and have riden 138 LF Melissa and now I"m on 136 Ronix Faith Hope Love.

I'm riding a smaller board this year because I want to spin quicker, I mean my Ronix Faith Hope holds up to 175lbs so I'm good unless I gain weight LOL

So, just look for a board that supports your weight. Try to get the weight in the middle of range but alot of board is about preference like Chocoholic said.
