For your weight 153 or even 156 is way too small, imo. Get 158 or 161. from what you're saying it looks you want fun, all mountain board, correct?
Evo is an ok allmountain freestyle deck, but it's a little chattery at high speeds (but usable). 153 will be way too soft for you. I weight 150 and i ride 153 evo-r, but would have no problem riding 155 if needed. Heck, with your weight you may be better off getting the revolver then evo anyway, but still - get 159.
I'm just learning how to ride r/c. First few runs were horrible and i had really bad high speed crash - if not for the helmet and wrist guards it wouldn't be pretty.
Once I learned how to control it it's super fun. I love this deck
