You could get away with a 158. Depends on the size of your foot. I am only 5'11" with a size 11.5 boot, I am on the median for a normal size board and a wide board. I used to ride a 159, it felt about right height,width. But I wanted to get into a smaller board, more park. So I checked around board comapanys with waist width comparisons and found a 158 from rome would accomodate my feet size. So yeah, just make sure that you check out waist width and you should be able to ride anything from 157 and up. Alot of companys make shorter boards in wide now days. Hope that helps. 32 Lashed boots are sick, never messed with burton's products. Everyone I know loves 32's. Sweet features, heat molded liners, good flex. Hope that helps. Later
