Im 5'10, 190 lbs and rock a size 11 boot. I went with the 153 because I really wanted a small board to play around with. What I got with this board is way more then I was expecting. The hybrid camber/rocker tech is incredible. Jibs and presses are super easy with the flex on this board. You can bomb groomers without any edge chattering on you. I was expecting to lose one at high speed, but it never happened on my first day of riding. I didn't get a chance to really test it on some big jumps, so I will replay back later in the season. Def get this board and I promise you will not be disappointed.
