Park Pickle 153 at 180 lbs? Yea... not surprised that board is a little squirrelly for you.
I'm 5'9 ~155 lbs size 8 boots and I ride the Proto CT 154.
157 Proto CT will work for what you want to do. If you are doing more freeriding/treeriding ... than butter/jibs... might consider the Cobra - especially if you still have the Park Pickle.
Thanks man, I appreciate the help.
I pulled the trigger on the 157, selling the pickle.
