Back in the Game, Need some advice!

So after being out of snowboarding for about a year and a half due to surgery, I'm finally getting back to the slopes before I get shipped out (I'm an Army PFC). I got my eyes on the Flow Verve 155w and the Union Atlas bindings. I'm about 5' 11" - 6' give or take a half inch or so. I weigh 190 but will be 180 In a few weeks (cutting phase of my workouts). Wear a size 13 boot, but got the Burton Motos so they downsize my foot to a 12. You guys think my board is too small? I plan to do a lot of park and just go down the slopes. Got 2 months left in CA before I'm shipped out so I plan to go every weekend. Thanks for the help guys.

Hmmm well would my feet fit on a mid-wide 158. The waist width on that one is 258mm.

At a 12 you should fit into the midwide range, that width should be ok. Just did a quick Google they do make a wide in 158 as well. Cool looking board.

is it the 2011 verve you're looking at? How about a 158w instead?

If you plan on doing a lot of park and groomers, 155 should be fine for your size if you get down to 180. 158 would be fine as well, it just depends if you want it for mostly park or if you also plan on doing some high speed carving.

Yeah I was lookin for the 158w but that size is pretty hard to come by for some reason. I found a few but they were charging more than it was to buy the 2012 version. I found a 158 for $249.
