Lib Tech Box scratcher sizing help me!

I' am looking for the ideal size snowboard. My height: 184cm (6 ") Weight: 83kg (183 pounds), boot size 11.5 (Burton Ion). I read a lot of opinions, but my can not decide which size would be better for me. How much more be shorter than the normal size? 154 from the thought, but perhaps I'm wrong! I currently have 159W burton Joystick and Travis Rice 161.5.

With the shape of the box scratcher you can ride it in any size, depending on how much jibbing vs riding you are doing. If you only jibbing you could go down to a 151, go longer for more stability in turns.

My first thought was 151 , but I am afraid that the 253 would be too narrow waist width. Uses 50% of groomers, 50% jibbing.
