Help Choosing Park Pickle Size Please!

Hi guys.

I have just ordered a 159 park pickle but am having second thoughts about exchanging it for a 156. Going to be my first rocker so a bit unsure about the size etc.

I'm 6"2 and 180lbs.

I have got a two year old K2 WWW 155 which I know is meant to be ridden 5cms shorter.love this board and suits me really well

so the real question is whether I return the 159 pickle for the 156 or whether it would be good for me. have heard some people say they should be ridden 3cms shorter

Like park riding and also general around the mountain etc.

help would be great. thanks

156 is fine for you. 159 wont be terrible either, but the 156 will provide more control.

i have a 153 pickle - i'm 5'10 160lbs.
