Default Never Summer Proto Ct Sizing

Hello,

I was given a Never Summer Proto CT as a bday gift and wanted to make sure I shouldnt size down. I am 5'10", 210lbs, and usually do all mountain riding but wanted to start hitting the rails and jumps. I was given a size 157 but don't know if I should go even smaller to the 154. Thoughts?

I'm 195 and ride the 157 Proto and would NOT want to size down. I use that has my freestyle deck as well... so yeah if you want an all-mountain ride... DO NOT downsize.

I'm a little bit taller than OP but about the same weight. I've ridden the 157 Proto that Leo has. I wouldn't go any smaller, even for park. I have some 156s that I ride in the park but 157/158 seems to be a sweet spot for me.

Thank you very much! Do you recommend any specific bindings? I am currently looking at the Rome 390 boss.

That, or Raiden Phantoms.

I do have the Blackhawks on my Proto, but I'd go Phantoms if I were to change them. A bit more freestyle oriented and the air bag seems nice.

If you have money to burn, I'm McLovin my Burton Genesis on the Proto. I do miss the canted footbeds though.
