Have I made a terrible mistake? Or is this a good length since I'm advanced? THanks for your answers
160 is kinda overkill for your weight, but it'll definitely give you speed!

don't expect to have fun riling or jibbing though. but you never mentioned any of those anyway, so you you should be fine. would be nice to get some feedback on how you handle your spins with that heavy ass board though!
