Not true =)
Shorter board - less grip.
Longer board for powder AND stability AND ice.
Shorter board for fun. (I got no short board, so i'm fking serious guy )

Do you guys think a 153cm would be doable?
It must be me.

Check out your board width.
With US13 ( i got that too) you better keey board's waist close to 27cm.
Also: check out your stance, you'll notice that with 15 angle you have more overhang, then with 6. So you either go 0-3-6 angle or 21+, because th e diagonal is always longer then side.

This can actualy be as isuue, and if you getting low on stopping or carves this can be your problem. I've solved it in a way, i wouldn't advise to you guys =)

It gives you extra grip - not true.
It gives your more energy - yes.
You bend out the board with your 200 lbs to pretty the same arch, no matter rc or camber. And you grip with the edge on the snow in either rc or camber.
