Default Should I go with a 158 or 160

I just bought a 160 Solution. I am still a beginner only having gone a few times. I have not used it yet and am wondering if I should get a 158. I am 6'0" 180-185 lbs. The 158 is rated for up to 190 lbs and the 160 goes to 200 lbs. I was told that I would outgrow/progress a pure "beginners" board (in my price range) and was recommended the 160 Solution over the 158 (not sure why). As a beginner will I really notice a big difference in the 158 over the 160 or vice versa? EVeryone tells me a shorter board is easier to learn on and for tricks. Do I weigh enough as a beginner for a 160 or is the board going to be too long/stiff for me?

I could not see why you couldn't move down to the 158. If you are thinking tricks.. move down.

2 cm is not a crazy big deal but if your think park and tricks then the shorter board would be a tad better. Its not like your 160 would not work in the park either. It would just be 2cm heavier. Not a big difference
