5'11, 175 lbs, size 11.5 boot. would the 151 still work with me? I don't want to ride a 155 cause it feels too long to jib!

Im about the same size as you (6' 165lbs) and I ride a 154W, and all I mainly do is jib. BUT I do not ride a reverse, rocker any other kind of negative camber, I ride a traditional cambered deck. This being said, with a reverse cambered deck you are technically able to ride a deck that is 5cm shorter than your traditional cambered deck. For me the 55 wouldnt feel too long, but I already ride a 154. You should be fine to ride the 151 bec of the FK, but be aware of the weight restrictions. Seeing as it is a wide deck, you should be fine. Im guessing you use a L/XL binder? On the 55 the waist width is 260, whitch is perfect for your boot size, but I dont know how skinny the 51 would be. There might not be any difference at all. Hope this helps bro :)
