What size do you ride? (Park/street riders)

Hey im looking at a new board but the size range goes from 152 to a 155, im about 6'1" and around 165 lbs. I'm just wondering what sizes other people ride for park and street and their height/weight. Please don't just give the size recommended for my weight by what the board companies' websites say. I know a lot of people in Minnesota size way down on their boards but I want some stability for jumps still. Any advice would be great too.

if you like decent sized jumps along with jibs i would say go with a 154 as well. im 5'6 at 150 and i ride anywhere between a 148-154. my main all around park deck is a 151.

What kind of board are you planning on getting?

That makes a difference in the size I ride.

life IS good.

better yet what kind of rinding are you planning? what size jump are you talkin about? most 20ft or less kicks you can basically
ride ne or most of jib boards, 30+ft i wouldnt recommend it on jib boards, first its gonna be choppy going to take off and wash out on landings, especially in range of 50ft but nething around 20ft or less you can pick any well known brand jib boards they should do fine.
