In reality though, you're not going to feel much difference between a 158 or a 160.
I'm about the same specs and have rode boards all the way down to 153 and as high as 159. IMO, I would go shorter if you just plan on cruising and groomers. It will allow you to maneuver the board easier. Longer boards are good for higher speed and stability.
