Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator

Based on that calc as an intermediate or expert freerider 156 would still be a little long. Again it's just a starting point for sizing, and other members and I have pointed out that it's not impossible to ride a board that's significantly longer than "ideal" it just would be tougher for a person to learn on a longer board.
I'm more of a beginner/intermediate.
Only problem is I have my bindings mounted and it'd be a pain to have to return for a 153 especially because I like the color of the 156.
