Yeah, I think you may regret sizing down. Just my $0.02 of course, but I'm 5'7" and 175 lb, and regularly ride a 160 EVERYWHERE, and have recently had a 165 and 166 in the trees just fine.

Assuming you're planning on hitting powder in the trees? Otherwise year sizing down might help.

Also, isn't the Jaime Lynn a twin? I'd be looking for something with a more directional profile. All three boards in the 160s I ride have some setback and taper, and it helps you turn the nose when you're standing on the tail.
