Sizing freestyle board

Ive pretty much been a freeride snowboarder messing around with all different things. This season im looking to go mostly into the park but im not the best when it comes to freestyle boards and sizes. I think im going to buy a skate banana but im not sure what size would be good for me. Im 5'10" like 160 pounds im thinking a 156ish..Im not sure if thats right or not trying to see what you guys think. Also im a size 11 boot, do you think i should get a wide board or is a normal one fine?

also do you guys recommend some different bindings/boots if i have extra money i might buy new everything instead of just a deck

The skate banana in sizes 152- 159 are all midwide so you should be fine.

nice ill be at mt snow all season if you wanna ride this year. also im only 10 lbs less then you and i ride anywhere between 148-153 and i take them everywhere at mt snow. the main one i ride is the 151 NS evo-r and that thing handles it all.you could ride anywhere between a 153-155, the 53 being more park oriented and the 55 being more free ride oriented. i think you should be fine on a 154 and still be able to handle the rest of the mtn fairly well depending on the board you decide on.
