Question HELP! Sizing!

So I've been riding a K2 Raygun ( first board ) for the last six years. Its a 153 and i'm 5'10 about 175 lbs. I'm looking to buy a Ride Burnout as a new park board and although the sizing chart says I should get a 155 I'm not sure if I want to buy a park board that is bigger than my all-mountain board I've been riding all my life. It seems I'm too heavy for the 152 so I don't know what route I should take. Any help would be great!

The 153 Raygun sounds too short for your weight.
You should upsize your all mountain board to about a 157.
Then your park board at 155 would make sense.

in a sense it doesn't matter the size...cause ur in joisy riding tiny ice hills...so ya don't need the float

in a sense it does matter the size...as for effective edge...cause ur on tiny ice hills...for edge hold

therefore...do whatever...but I'd tend to concur with GreyDragon
