I currently ride a 155 and like how nimble it is. I emailed never summer but they never replied.
I'm no authority on sizes...however if you currently ride a 155 and I am assuming its more of an all mtn board..I would say the 157 would fit you fine...unless you are still growing and you plan on having the board for a long time(NS boards have a 3yr warranty, right?
) then consider the 159...and surely nothing larger
...as I understand it...with NS's tech, you don't need to get a board as long as you would think even if geared primarily for pow...you can get away with a slightly shorter board, which has its obvious benefits over a long cadillac
PS...you probably wont even visibly/feel a real difference between a 155 and 157...and probably minimal vs a 159...
