Every time I think about giving my 2cents I realize........my advice doesn't apply to most. I am 5'6'' weigh 135 and ride a NS 156 Infinity.... and sometimes I think I should go bigger....terrain and snow pack play a HUGE part in this....

well im 6'3" about 165 and im riding 162 and that seems big but it all depends on what your wanting to do a shorter board does better in a park(jibbing, jumps) but if your looking all around go a little bigger or if your just a mountain person go even bigger so like a 5'10" person for a mountain id say prolly around 163. i hope that helps you all out.

A little off the main topic, but I'm 5'10, 160lbs, and I currently ride a 157cm...what would happen if I jumped on a super short board (151cm)? My roommate has a 151 and I am curious to try it. I freeride only BTW. No freestyle/park.
