Default Board Size: 156 or 158? FK or no FK?

Hey all, after a post a few months ago, Im deciding to go with a Capita Indoor Survival. Im debating about going non-FK, as I dont spend much time in the ghetto jib parks, I prefer bigger shit...As well as just dominating the mountain.

Now comes what size. Im 192lbs, 5'11 and dont plan on growing anymore, so I've decided either between 156 or 158...Will I feel a real big different when bombing down the hill with a board 2cm smaller? If not, i'll probably just got with a 156...

I ask because I'm almost done with this deployment, and heading back the states for a fat leave block, and plan to get at least a week of boarding in, so I'm going to order my ENTIRE setup soon (I'll be that d-bag on the mountain looking like a colorful picasso painting.)

you'll want the 158 at that weight, especially since you won't be jibbing with it. I personally would go with the fk anyways.

Go 158 or 160. I'm taller but lighter than you and I wanna get a 160 FK, but I haven't found a 160 anywhere...I'm beginning to wonder if they actually made the Indoor FK in a 160.
I don't jib at all, so that's not why I want the FK. I think the float in the powder will make up for any decrease in "pop", especially since there's carbon stringers to counteract the FK.
I'm hoping to find a place that will demo this board - I've never tried reverse camber and want to check it out before investing.

158-160 is best for your type of riding and weight. Lots of fresh powder? Go higher. Lots of groomers? Go shorter.
