For a hybrid look at 153-156. Slide towards 153 if you want more park, towards 156 if you want more mountain.

That should be fine. I am a little heavier and have rode a 152 without issues. I have also done the same things on the 158 Evo. Just go bigger for more mtn friendly. I find longer boards obviously better on jumps so it depends on what you mean by "park"!!

ok, yeah im gna use my 154 for more mtn & hitting kickers, and the one im buying gna use it for boxes & just buttering around..lol ive thought about even trying a 155 or 156 later on for a all mtn board for when i take some trips to bigger slopes
