Yeah, ME! lol No I'm more like 175 and only 5'7" but I've been on a 159 all over the place. The new board is a 160. Sounds like the 159 should be just about right for you. What are you looking at anyway?!?
yeah, we are about the same specs!
But I think for what I want to do with, it'll be fine at 159! Besides, it's not like my only board! I'm still keeping the T.Rice & the Kessler (no doubt). So I won;t be short on long(er) boards if need be.
It's a Nitro Factory board BTW! Light and playful but can handle all mountain speed as well.
I'll keep you posted if/once I get my hands on one.
