Default New park board sizing help

Hey guys my brother is getting a Forum Destroyer online we aren't sure on whether to get a 148 or 152. He is about 5'11 maybe 6 ft, and weighs about 156 lbs. His boot size is 10.5 maybe 11.
I know that park boards are better shorter but we aren't sure if 148 is too short and if its not too short we are worried about toe drag. Would he get toe drag from size 10 boots?
Also, a side note, binding advice for this board would be helpful too, thinking 390 bosses?
thanks in advance

148 is really short for that weight, you might get away with it if it's just a rail board, but if you intend to hit jumps as well I'd recommend to go with either a 152 or 154.

For bindings, the 390s are okay, my favorite all rounder-park bindings are the K2 Formulas though. They work great for park and anything else you want to throw at it.

Ok thanks! I'll tell him to get the 152 then
BTW, Ive heard that the Forum Shakas are a really good binding to put on this board as they are like "made for the board" or something?
What are your guys' thoughts on Shakas vs Rome 390 Boss or K2 formulas or Raiden phantoms or some Flux's?

That's just marketing tactics by the company, since they want you to buy their bindings with the snowboard.

I'd still rate the K2 Formulas above the other bindings you mentioned.
