Smile freestyle board size ^^

I am an intermediate-expert snowboarder who wants to take my gear to the next level.
I am planning to get a freestyle oriented board either size 152 or 154. I like to do mostly mostly park stuff and jumps (about 60%/40% respectively).
I am 5'10.5 and i think im almost 150 pounds with a boot size 9.5. What size do you recommend?
THanks

I'd say 151 to 153 if it's purely for park.

I'm 145 and I prefer anything 148 to 152. With boards these days, they are blunted so much you can really downsize. Look at the running length and/or effective edge length if it's provided plus the side cut radius/radii which will give you a real clue as to how "long" the board actually is.

Anything over 114cm effective edge (contact point to contact point) is enough for me, but there are 148-152's that have much less than that.

thanks guys!
im looking specifically to get the Never Summer Evo/GNU Street with Rme Boss/Union COntacts.

is 152 ok even for mid to large size jumps?

I dont know if it matters but i currently ride a sierra reverse crew 155 (which has been fantastic) but am looking for something with more flex and spin
