I"m pretty sure you should at least have a 151. I'm 5'9 and 105-110 lbs with a size 7.5 foot and I'm picking up a 151 board this year sometime. I had rental shops giving me a 153 or 154 when I started out (though they shouldn't have been, the rental shop I was at wasn't really the brightest). Wait for some more knowledgeable responses from people, but I'm going to say around 153.

This is what told me that 151 would be not quite right.. As far as what they gave me for my rental, I think part of the reason why they gave me a 140 one day might be because of the bad conditions? Would that make sense, because it was pretty warm at Snow that day.

How are the Neversummer EVO, Ride DH2, and ride anthem? I am leaning towards the Evo (or revolver) but the place near me only sells Ride, ,K2, Burton, 5150 and Forum, and Neversummer Evo is a little more expensive, but from what I have heard and read, it is well worth it. So any suggestions?

With size 12 feet, stay clear of the Evo, it will be too narrow for your feet. The revolver is a mid-wide so you'd want that one between the two.

Also, the revolver is a little more freestyle oriented (i.e. softer) so consider if that's what you want. It would probably be easy to learn on, but if you want a more all mountain ride, you may eventually want something stiffer (maybe). Although, you may outgrow this board in a year or two anyway.
