Hey Broooo. 153 is way small even for a jib board. The size for the Stairmaster is about what you should be looking for at your size(158 is perfect). The Ride Kink is a nice park board that's slightly stiffer than most park boards so that be alright. Horrorscope is Capita's noodle board so I would stay away from that. Personally I don't like normal camber being a jibber so I can't say anything on the Stairmaster. Or you could look into the Arbor Westmark. Great park board that's great in pow and very stable. Have you ever looked into the Indoor Survival(FK)? Capita's baseline all mountain freestyle board. Then for your size you could probaably find an Ultrafear FK which is Capita's late release Limited Edition "all mountain extreme freestyle" board. (I would get one but they don't have 151's) The Ultrafear FK's got some solid specs (DS SELECT Core • Die Cut Sidewalls with 1.5mm Dampening System • Custom Weave – E Class Fiberglass Configuration • Wax Infused Rotation Sintered Speed Base • Die-Cut / Screened Combo Base Graphics • 360 Degree Steel Edges • 4x2 Inserts • Aluminum Logo Base Inlay) Awesome board in my opinion, Scott Stevens weapon of choice. My personal recommendation would be the Ultrafear in 157. Found one cheap forya > Capita 2012 Ultrafear FK 157 at Martini Northfield SNOW Boards Mens at Martini Northfield and added bonus look at these > Union Capita Ultrafear 2 LTD Bindings at Snowboard Connection but if you want to go with an orange Union Force thats a good choice too. Cheers

BTW if you're looking for bindings go for Unions, being part of the C3 Coalition, Capita and Union work together on collaboration.
