Skate Banana as a second board & need sizing help

I know these get old but i don't know enough about the skate banana to make this decision.

I am 5'10 and 145-153 lbs with a size 10 boot

I currently ride a older 155cm Forum Destroyer with traditional camber as my all mountain board. This may or may not be considered small for my height...not sure.

Right now, I'm trying to buy a new skate banana to do some buttering, light jibbing, spins and whatnot. Ive narrowed the sizing down to a 152 or 154 as i assume anything smaller is getting a little too small.

I was hoping someone has advice on what board size for my weight would provide a decent board for some good cruising and still easily throw down in the park when needed. Im really excited about the skate banana and i can't wait to own it.

Well I live and ride primarily on the east coast. Usually ends up being hard-pack, ice and slush depending on my luck. However I am going to attempt to take a year off from work after i graduate and find a job out west for a season.

Is there any reason I should consider a 149, the next size down?

if you want to mess around in the park.

for that checkout statussnow.com then only have 1 model left the id 149 at 100 which is a good deal. its also ghost by neversummer almost the same as the evo except the base is slighlty lower quality , but it is a really good deal.

dont sit on it.
