Overall...Arbor's got this reverse camber/side cut profile down! Griptech works in real life (echoing BA and Nivek).
If I were you I would have got the 150. I weigh the same as you, and have a 151 Burton Custom (and a 149 Bataleon Evil Twin). With lightweights like us, length is good a tradeoff though... we can get a board slightly longer than what the board manufacturer recommends, and then we can rip more of the mountain with it. The tradeoff is flex though. The longer board is going to be stiffer because it accommodates a heavier rider.

For example, I had a 153 Never Summer Evo and it was slightly more toward all mountain deck due to the length. It was great!
