I have 2 boards... a NS Proto CTX and a Lib T. Rice HP... with your riding style, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Proto. It is lighter, easier to spin and more comfortable on jibs (although I only know from riding boxes). It can't rip as fast as the T. RIce, which you can get up to Mach 7 on... but the Proto is still a really fast board, great for groomers, medium jumps and jibbing. I would definitely go Proto...

Note: I'm 6'3", 180, size 11 boot; and I ride the 158 wide Proto and the 161.5 T. Rice HP... maxed out stances on both

My only regret: getting the wide Proto... the wideness makes it harder to get edge to edge.... I wish I went with the regular
