Default Board size

Finally decided on getting the blacklist this year, just cant decide what size to get. Im 6 feet tall weighing in around 180-185 with size 12 boots. I ride in Ohio so pretty much all man made snow and not that big of a hill at all. I am in the park or hitting jumps most of the day so i want to get the 154 but at my weight i wasnt sure if i should get the 157 instead?? Any thoughts? thanks for the help.

157 would be pretty big for huckin spins, I'd go with the 154...

Edit: I weight literally the exact same as you, given I'm only 5' 10" but that doesnt make a huge difference and I would go with about that size or so for park. definatly no bigger

what is the waist width on the 154? That's what I'd be concerned with with size 12 boots.

I have roughly the same specs as you, and I got the 157, and im sorta regretting it. if you can fit your boots on it (and I think you can) go for the 154

no way you're going to fit on a 9 inch board with size 12 boots...

I mean you can hit your local shop and bring your boots and find out, but I highly doubt it.

I have big feet too, and it's the worst thing for snowboarding. sorry man

what about size 12 boots with the reduced imprint? Im pretty sure its just over ten inches at the center not nine... I also rock a pretty wide stance and bindings at +15/-15.
