Lib Tech Skate Banana

Hey Guys!
I would like to buy a skate banana.I'm an all mountain freestyle rider,who loves the ground tricks.I'm not a park rat. Little tricks in the line,and average use. Could you recomend me a good size? I'm 5"84,180lb,boot size:9.5
The Lib tech guys recomended me the 156w?
Do I really need the wide?And if I'm not in the park mostly,just wanna do ground tricks,the 156 not too small?
I really dont know...
And if you can recomend me an other board,what you think is much better to my style,I will be very appreciative it!

Thanks for your help!

Definitely not a wide. I think you must have misunderstood their advice, or the person giving the advise is a nut job.

The 156 is fine though.

I'm 5'6" and 180 and had a 159 sb regular...a 156 reg will be good...absolutely no need for a wide.

Thank you Guys!

I know the sb is not a board for carving,but the 156 will be stable for me?
I mean the longer board is more stable in high speed.
But the 159 won't be playful my size?
I rally dont know

You could go with the 159, but it is considerably more board - not so much because of the extra 3cm, but more importantly because the Skate Bananas do get quite a bit stiffer as you go up in size.
At your weight the 156 is going to be super playful, while the 159 will be quite a bit more stable.

Twas riding a 159 cause got it cheap and generally for riding deep; it kinda of worked but tended to fold up in the deep...so got rid of it...so if you want playful in the not deep get the 156.

I read this rewiev:
Lib Tech Skate Banana Review by The Good Ride

They say tha sb is a park board,not good to all mountain freestyle ride.
Should I choose an other board?Without test is very difficult.
Colud you recomend a board according to that i mentioned?
I really want a playfull board to ground tricks,mostly buttering,but I dont want to struggle the end of the day,when the conditions are bumpy..
I prefer gnu,lib-tech,burton,never summer till 2013.
I need the magne traction system.
I believed that i have already found my desk,but it is pretty difficult.
