Default Final question. Never summer time. Final decision

Hey guys,
Will only be quick...

I've narrowed it down and locked onto the Never summer SL...

Only thing I need help with now is the size, 155 or 158?
Stats:
5'9
187lbs
Male
Early intermediate
Mostly freeride (hence all mountain board)
Shoe size US 10-10.5

Its my shortness despite my high weight that confuses me on board length. ??

I've decided on Burton cartels, despite some stories of toecap slippage.
Also decided to update my boots as I have gotten a good deal for the NS and cartels.
Absolutely loved these FOCUS BOA® 580 SNOWBOARD BOOT ? NEW BALANCE® X 686 ? MENS WINTER BOOTS / SHOES ? PRODUCTS :: SIX EIGHT SIX JAPAN SITE at the local store, but stiffness rating of 9? Probly not for my setup/ability?

This will be my first self-owned board/bindings. Thanks for helping as these decisions have been very draining!
Now I just need to decide whether to go black or white with the NS (then binding colour....)

Cheers

i'd go with the 158. and yes, the boots seem very stiff for what you want to do.

Primarily freeride? I'd go 158.

Yes I'd say go for the 158.


I'm 5'9" 155lbs, size 8 boots and would be riding the 155.

I'd go with the larger size for freeride.

These boots are good for true freeride, but your board is a little more AM freestyle oriented, I think. And the "early intermediate" may mean that you are going to have more fun progress easier with a softer boot

Cheers

I'm 5'8" 195-200 lbs and just got a 165. Although it is a bit to big I rode it all day without issue. I ended up dropping down to a 162. I Also have a 158 and it's too small.

Sound. cheers for replies.
So you reckon 158 cos of mostly freeriding? I shoukd mention it will mostly be groomed, little bit of park. Would the 155 be better for park?
Thinking I'll get the black 158 now.

if you think freestyle and park is where your interests are headed id go 155. Im 6' 200lbs 100% freestyle rider with lots of park riding and I ride the NS Revolver 155...and also had no problem riding that board on big mountain bombing when i was at Keystone
