Just starting last season. This will be my first board. Need it to do it all as best as one board can. I weigh 172lbs 5'10. As a relative noob, would I be better off with the 155 or 158?? Thanks for the help!
I think for you the 155 would be the perfect size to start at.
If you mean shorter is better for beginning, then yes.
Again, thanks. That's where I was leaning but the guy at the shop was pushing the 158. Said better at spead on the all mountain thing. I have skied for years including some long GS boards and know how to put power into a ski to turn a long stiff board but this is a whole new game and I had the bruises to show for it. Don't want to catch an edge too often and want to be able to turn the thing!
