I think you will want a wide board if your going that small with size 12s but i could be off. Also, i have no experience with those boards but based on what i have read you would want the blacklist (wider westmark) or the revolver. Those would be the boards that get recommended around here the most for what you want (or the proto over the evo if you want stiffer).

Disclaimer: im only commenting because you are buying now. feel free to disregard my comments.

I would take the skatebanana off the list if I was you. I just hear it can be squirly outside the park. I have an evo 152 and I love it. You would need the revolver the with size 12 boots though. If you get that board I would possibly buy it slightly smaller then you are used to because it has blunted tips and I feel rides slightly bigger, maybe someone else can weigh in on this. :dunno:

Why you going so small? For your size and weight for a pure park board I'd be looking in the 158 range... Not that you could't ride something shorter but :dunno:

Every question you've asked you've decided on an answer yourself, go and buy some fuckin bindings you clown!

Im not sure if A. you cant read hotIce's comment about the evo and how I would need a wider board (Hint the revolver is wider) or B. Your just and idiot. ----so if anyone else wants to help out with some bindings
feel free to write A or B as to weather richie67 cannot read or is an idiot.

Excuse me, who is the idiot?

For board size look up the google snowboard size calculator. I forget the name of the site, but it asks you what type of rider you are, height, weight, boot size, etc.
For bindings I would check out the Burton Malavitar cartels. I personally have the Rome 390 boss bindings on my evo. The only thing I don't like about them is the toe strap doesn't fit my Burton rulers very good.
