kind of a noob question

I've been riding a 160cm K2 darkstar. I'm about 5'11" 150 to 160 lbs. but I feel like the 160 is a little big. I feel like i have to really work hard to make the board go where i want. I've been looking at some other boards that are 156. I was just curious if there would be a noticeable difference in the amount of control i have over the board or is the 4 cm not that big of a difference?

yes you will feel a great deal more control with a 156 then a 160. I have been riding a 156 darkstar for about 3 years from now and I have loved every minute of it. I am 5 10 1/2 and way around 160, so are builds are pretty similar. I'd down size a bit if you feel like your not comfertable with a bigger board, especially if you do some park as well as freeride
