Default ride fleetwood vs ride decade

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and getting my first board. I'm finally starting to learn how to carve and figured it'd be a good time to get my own board. There's a deal for both the ride fleetwood-wide 158 and a ride decade 160. I'm 5'9" at 155 lbs with a boot size 10. Is there a big difference in riding a wide vs a normal and also a 158 vs a 160. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.

those seem like big boards for a beginner with your weight/height/shoe size.

arnt does boards alittle big? i think a 153-155 would be better. dont forget the "between your nose and chin" rule isnt a very good guideline

I ended up getting a ride Agenda 156 with ride LX bindings. Thanks for warning me against the 158.
