Type of riding and skill level? I'd say 152 for freestyle/park, 154 for all mountain freestyle and 156 for freeriding. You don't need a wide board with size 11, but I`d look for mid-wide (somewhere around 253-255 waist width).

a good place to start too would be what shape of board you want. Camber, hybrid, flat, or full rocker.

Really that small because I thought the board was suppose to be about chin level, I had a 155 last year and it was below my chin

Weight matters more than height with board size.

Just get this board

Arbor Blacklist 154

Arbor Blacklist Snowboard from Backcountry.com

It works for everything and gets top reviews from all the independent people, and from people on this website and its not very expensive. and its a midwide which is perfect for your feet.

And if you buy it from backcountry if you dont like it after using it you can return it no questions asked.

Skill level and style of riding? Since you picked a jib board I assume you spend the majority of your day in the park? If so, go 152, but this board is not very wide. Maybe look at the Blacklist as suggested above.

The black list is nice but I don't have $400 to spend on a board hopefully next year I'll be able to afford a nice board. So right now im contemplating the Rome Garage Rocker, Omatic Celebrity, and or maybe an arbor del ray. Thanks for all the feedback by the way its very helpful!
