I appreciate your comment. Consider, however, that Burton designed this board specifically for pros and top level riders and by their own suggestion they reate the 160 cm as 3 sizes too large for the OP (and that would be with the assumption that he is
a pro level rider). That is coming directly from the manufacturer who designed this model. We are trying to help this user out.
This is not the right board for him.
