Was 156cm the right choice?

So i just picked up a 2009 Burton Custom 156cm.

5'10
165lbs
10.5 boot

I ride all mountain but am really getting into the park scene, did i choose the right size? Should i have gone for a 158cm?

If you are going to a little park, 156 is great size for you. If you are planning on freeriding or bombing down the hill, a 158 would be better. Seeing as you bought a Custom not Custom X or the like, you probably aren't going to do the latter-have fun with your new board!

that's a good size for you. 158 for deep pow.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse

I'm 5' 8" 150 and I ride a 156 custom for bombing down hills. Works a-ok. 156 for u would be a little more nimble.

The waist is too small for your size boot. You want something in the 25.1 range.

I have Burton Ozone boots which has shrinkage tech if that matters.
