Default Does Size Really Matter?

I know I might get some interesting responses on this thread but seriously, with all the technology advancements does 2 or 3 cm really make a difference anymore?

For instance If I'm a 6'2", 180 lbs all mountain carver and I want to get a 162cm board but my local shop only has a 159cm board, should I hold out for the 162cm? How much difference does 3 cm really make? When does it start to affect your ride?

Thats what she said.

Wait what was the question? Oh yea..
At your size a 159 will be fine. I ride a 151 at 135lbs.

I went too big for a freeride and can only get it to turn at Mach speeds. It is a pain to navigate a crowd on the bunny slopes because she has no flex. When the gods unlesh a foot of powder or more it is the perfect board.

I live in New York so it's very rarely that the gods unleash a foot of powder. Usually they are unleashing 3 inches of ice or a nice slush base. So it sounds like I might be better off a little shorter around here huh.
