156 if you want to start hitting the park. If it was going to purely be a freeride board then I would size up. I myself (5'11, 170 lbs.) ride a custom 157 wide and love it. Pretty good size for all around riding. With a size 11 boot you might wanna go with a wide also, your preference. The wide comes in a 157 as the smallest size.

Thanks for the recommendation. The 156 was exactly what I was thinking. I think it should be a good fit.

I would recommend something like a 154 or lower, if your going to be spending a good amount of time in the park.

my 2 cents.

The only reason I didn't go that low was that he said he still wanted to be able to freeride and carve a little bit.

Ya a 154 is still fine for someone around 150 lbs that wants to freeride, Ive got a 157 but don't plan to touch the park except for maybe a kicker here and there. I'm 150 lbs as well :P
