Never Summer Ripsaw 156 or 159

Looking into purchasing a new board, the Never Summer Ripsaw, just can't decide which size the 156 or 159. I prefer charging and carving, and also enjoy drops and jumping in the side country. i have size 10.5 us k2 t1 boots, i weigh 75 kg/165 lbs, and i am 183 cm/6 ft. i am also thinking of putting some burton genesis bindings on the board any other recomendations?
cheers

I'm getting a ripsaw also.

I emailed Never Summer for sizing help and they recommended a 153cm or 156cm.

I'm 5'8" 160lbs. size 9.5 boot.

So judging by their recommendation, I would say 156cm for you as we are about the same weight which is all that matters from what I hear.

This chart may help you too.

I guess I should read the chart before recommending to you.

Looks like the 159 would be best for your boot size and weight.

I planned to drop 5-10lbs before the season starts, so 156cm would be ideal for me.

I really have no clue what NS was thinking by recommending the 153cm to me with my weight and boot size.

Based on your size, either would suit you. Based on what you've stated as your riding style preference, 159.

I rode a 156 for the day and loved it. I'm 6' 220lbs. It would be a toss up for me between the 156 or 159. I would probably go 159 as I can't shake the old school mentality that bigger is better.
