don't take my word only though, just offering my limited advice as i have the board.
Well, I'm coming from am '07 K2 Union 164w, full camber park board, way too big. I was thinking of the 161 SL, and I can't believe 3cm is really going to make that much difference. It's still going to be light years ahead of what I ride now... which i get up to 50mph on my gps (which I know everyone hates, but it's a relative number).

Epic, gimme a couple days, let me mull it over, and if you still have it, I'll PM you.
