Depending on your boot size, you can stick with something in the 156 range, or drop down maybe to a 152, though you'll probably be at the top end of most weight ranges. Not a bad thing, just something to note since the board will be more "flexy". What size boot do you wear?

As for what board, the world is your oyster. Do you have a budget in mind? Relative skill level? Any specific boards you've found interesting?
