depending on your stance i think you might be able to get away with the 152 if thats the one you really want. theres a couple people here on bananas so im sure someone with 11s would be able to tell you.

i ride a 156 banana with a size 11.5 boot. But for your height a 152 should be kosher. I'm 6'1"-6'2"

I'd go with the 156w. I am 5'7", 170 lbs (was probably 180 last year when I went boarding) and rode a 155 GNU no problem. My feet are size 10.

im 5'9" and 130 with size 11 feet. I ride a 158 (not a banana). I think you would be fine with the 156 lol. 152 would probably work alright also

why are you in need for smaller board?
and what do you mean fits you better? have you ridden the 56 and 52?
i suggest that if youre getting replacement for your 159s then, you should go with 156
if youre adding a jib board that can handle small jumps then 152 should do you fine,
so basically i wouldnt recommand 152 for everyday riding,
but it seems like you gonna get 152 no matter what others might say, so not sure what your question is?

his question is if his size 11 boots will have toe or heel drag on a 152 or if he would be forced to get a 156 W because of his boot size. its written pretty clearly in his original post.

...yea...smaller then his 159. the question of whether or not a 152 is TOO small for his boot size is the real question. what does it matter what he needs a smaller board for? he knows what reason is and just wants to know from other peoples personal experience if he can pull off riding a 152. maybe he wants it as a rail board?
