155 would be more ideal but thats a sickkkk ass setup for 100! thats an extremely fast freeride board. really nice, i love my capita with flows. my buddy has the same bindings and he loves them...

I rented a 155 a week or so back and it felt just a tad hard to kick around. It was right on the edge. I figured I would be right on the money here. I am riding this weekend so I will post results. Got size 10 boots and I doesn't look like I should have toe drag.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the 153 should maneuver a little tighter than the 155 right?

yea it will feel quite a bit tighter, i was just sayin since the BDI is a freeride deck, so typically people ride them bigger but it will work fine. that is one board i would love to have inthe quiver..

Just got back from my first trip with this new board. WOW is all I can say. From deep powder to ice this baby ripped threw it all. I was haulin down the diamonds and having a freakin blast in the park. I really couldn't ask for a better fit, size wise and the flows preformed like champs. This is my first experience with the flow binding setup and it really does make for easy in and out. I got this setup for 100 beans on craigslist but I would easily pay way more now knowing how it all comes together.

Trying to get back in the next few weekends. In-laws bought a fatty 7 bedroom with a hot tub and a view at the bottom of the hill. Needless to say i'm loving every min out there I can grab. Lift tickets dropping this month too.. God I want to be back now..
