You'll be fine on a 161, esp a NS. They tend to run a touch stiffer than most other decks, so that will help make up for some the size difference. Depending on what type of terrain you normally ride, you'll get a lot more menuverbaility out of the shorter board. You should have a lot of fun with that thing.
