I wanted a 160 and that's the size I ended up buying, but at the demo tent they threw me on the 157. I think it was the biggest demo they had in stock, because I was there first thing in the AM. The rep was about my size maybe a little bigger and he was swearing up and down about how you can really go a few cm's shorter with most boards now, and that the 57 is what he rides (of course maybe that's what he tells everyone, but I didn't get the impression he was BS'ing me). Honestly the size didn't really bother me, I'm used to riding shorter boards in the 157/158 range anyways. With the flying v camber and the sidecut as deep as it is, it really does ride like a longer board. For a powder-oriented board, though, you're right, I would not have bought the 157 size
