I tried to find a link for the Evo or Proto on a weight vs board length to give you an idea of what lengths (range of board sizes) would help you. But the best I could do was the following.
Backcountry.com Sizing Chart
Also, I would follow the advice about using wired's explanation on boot sizing. For comparison, I wear a size 8.5 Celsius and ride a 157 Proto and weight 170lbs. I'm not thin, so I have to size up to get the extra edge for the ice (Ice Coast).
Hope this helps - Nito
The board and binding is mine :P
Im not sure if I need a wider board than the current one, but i will take a photo of my feet on the board when i get it back.
