Snowboard Lenght - Don't know who to listen to =/
So I'm a Beginner to snowboarding, and I just bought my 1st board online. I'm 5' 11", 176 lb
First I bought a 158 board, but I decided to return it because it was a Wide and I don't need one. When I e-mailed the store about returning it, the guy told me that a 158 was too big for me, and that I should look into something smaller like 153-156. So I returned that board and got a 155.
Today I went to their store to buy a pair of boots, and after I got them I asked the guy what did he think about the size of the board I got. He told me to definitely return it and get a bigger one.
Now I'm in this situation. I don't know what to do. They have the same board i got in 158, and I'm not sure if I should get it or stick to mine.
I know the length is sort of personal preference also, but I can't wait for the season to start to decide it, because I won't be able to return it anymore =/
I just wanted you guys to give me some kind of advice on what to do. Maybe someone with a body similar to mine could tell me what size they ride? I remember a guy here telling me that he has a body similar to mine and rides a 155 for all mountain.
I appreciate your help guys...
