Default Struggling to find a board

Hey guys,

Im new here but have been snowboarding for over 10 years. I need to get a goof around park board for my local mountain at school. The mountain is small so Im going to get back into the park game. I have been looking at the Rome Artifact 158 or 157, or the GNU Park Pickle 159. I am 6'2 225 size 11.5 foot but 11 boots and a played D1 lacrosse until I blew my hamstring up. Do you guys think I can go smaller than 157? And should I get a wide board to help with my heavier weight? Any help would be appreciated.

Both boards you listed are good for park, and the sizes you listed are good for your stats. You can definitely go smaller if you choose a wide board and a smaller board can be more fun in the park. I'm 5'10, 180lbs with a size 10 boot. I have several different setups from a 157 K2 Fastplant down to a 152W Nidecker Advanced to a Ride DH2 155 and a few others. All 3 of the boards I listed are good and fun in the park, and believe it or not my Fastplant is just as fun and playful as my Nidecker Advanced. So you can go smaller for sure, but you don't HAVE to. And if you go smaller definitely go wide

Thanks man, I ended up getting the 159 wide pickle. I'm excited. It's the softest board I have ridden which isn't saying much but it should be fun in the park. I wish I went a bit smaller
