Depends on what you're doing with it. I have a 156, 5'10" and 164lbs, but want a 154...for powder, that's a good fit. If you're running around in the park, 154 or 152 would be my preference.....I just prefer a smaller board and lib tech rides bigger.

If you got a deal, ride the shit out of it!

aww dang. I may have made a mistake.

I may return it then to get a smaller one. I think they'll let me return it even tho I put my bindings on it?. I haven't used it at all though the 156 seems so big

would you guys recommend a 152 or 154?

Where do you ride then? At your weight IMO, you could go either. Seriously it's fine unless you're 100% in the park.

Tahoe, Bearvalley and dodgeridge.

Not a park rat, but I do hit jumps, boxes, butter and hit some jibs from time to time. Also, I ride a lot of groomers at pretty decent speeds and try to get into somepowder as much as I can. My old 152 capita stairmaster was pretty hard to ride in the powder. Had to lean way back
