All of that says a 160 is not going to be very maneuverable (again I almost never say this about boards... even the Rad Air Tanker 172cm I used to ride).

If you go to the Jone website... you will see that even the 152 is rated up to 220 lbs, so I think you'll be fine on the 156.
Right on guys/gals! Cheers to you!!
