im 120 lbs and ride a 151, i would say maybe a 155 or possibly a 158 if you like them stiffer. although if you like really a really soft board MAYBE a 151. i would say going that short is not for all but i know that my 140-150 pound friend loves the flex he gets out of my board

you won't need a wide, wide is for size 12 plus. i would go with a 153 or thereabouts, size up for all mountain, size down for park.

wide is not one standard width.  some boards labeled "wide" can be as narrow as 255, and some are 265+... "wide" doesn't tell you anything specific.

ideal width is based on boot size and preference.  a size 12 is ideal on something like 260 or so, but that is great for 11s too, or you could have 10s, or 9s if you wanted.  with a size 11 boot i would ideally put someone on around 260 which is almost always a board that's going to be labeled as wide.

what bout the stunt? it's the same as the blunt.
 
for sizes, depending on the waist width, i doubt you'll need to go wide. for size 11s, you'll need a 253mm waist width. length should be around 157cm. depending on what you like, you can plus or minus 2cm.

Judging by your weight and also assuming you will get bigger in the future, 155 is the ideal size for you but always check the sizing charts just in case.

Assuming your foot isnt growing any bigger stay with the narrow one.  Otherwise go wide! Also the shorter board is going to be much easier to maneuver.

but like spenser said, its not just about wide or regular board. depending on the size, it will have different waist widths. like if he buys the blunt 151, with size 11 boots, he will most likely get some toe drag. but if he goes with the 158 or 160 or something big, it will have a wider WW. so it depends on the WW for the size that he's looking at.

id go 150-155 for you. the more you like park the lower your number in that given range. or if you just like cruising then go closer to 155. but check out ippy's snowboarding guide (sizing) section if you want to know more.

im no pro or anything, i have only gone twice and JUST purchased my first board.

but for me, when i was considering sizing, i googled as much info i could and found this site:


then i used that as a rough guide as to what size i needed. hopefully that is true because that is what i did. 

hope it helps

155 regular width or midwide if you are looking at boards other than the blunt.

I am 5'11'' 185lbs size 11 boot. I ride a 156 midwide for park.
