Default board size advice

Hi all,

Here is some basic info of myself:

185cm (about 6'1") currently 175lb (I was 185 last winter, and I am plan to gain some muscle back, and hope I can be around 180-185, but fit)

I mostly ride northeast (NY and VT), consider myself intermediate. I can ride done well on black with my regular but my switch is very struggling on bunny hill. I am also a very beginner at park, I may hit park couple laps, but only do some small box and small jump. Still working on my carve, switch, nose & tail press, ollie and 180. I dont think I will go into park very often, most time I may just stay at normal trail.

My previous board is a 158 revolver, I got it when I was 185 and with 11.5 boots(thats why I got the wide, I have down size to 10.5).

I just purchased a 162 TRS couple weeks ago, but was wondering if it is a bit too big for me. should I get a smaller one(159)? the riding on the 162 board is fine, I can feel more stable than before, the press is a little bit difficulty than before, but not a big deal, I still cannot ollie or jumo very well, so I dont have comment on both of them.

Please let me know if there is still any more info to make suggestion about the size. Thanks in advance.
