Exclamation Board size??

hi guys!
I'm going to buy my new board, Rough Revolution, but i can't choose the right size for me.
I'm 1.80m (6feet) and 75kg (165 lbs) with 45.5 (11.5 us) size boots.
I can't decide if to buy a 153cm long board or 155 one.
I would use it for 80%park 20% pow(I know, they are opposite!) can you help me please?
PS: sorry for my bad english, I'm from Italy

Its a mid wide so your good on the boot size.

153-155 at 165lbs

155 will be better for all mountain freestyle and edge hold
153 will be better for park riding (spins and jibbing)

Its really up too you. Sweet board though!

Yes it is! I tried the 153cm one, and it felt quite good on the slopes too, but I tried it for only an hour so I've not been able to understand very well how does it work!

If you rode it and you liked it, you should definitely go for it!!!! Sounds like 153 was meant for you.

Binding width? Size? With 11.5 boot you will need a size large binding.

Is that what you were asking? I know english isn't your first language, no worries.

Oh ok. The distance between bindings and binding angles varies between every person. Just bring a screw driver and mess with different positions till you find the sweet spot. You'll also gain knowledge from experimenting with it.
