Default What size? 155 or 158?

hey guys, im currently in the market for a new board and i have it down to the NEVER SUMMER SL, either 2010 or 2011. The big question is...

do i get a 155 or a 158?

i am: 5'8", 165lbs, 10.5 foot


i currently have:

2010 capita green machine FK 156 (freestyle flatkick)

2010 bataleon jam 157w (26 waist)


my bataleon jam is more for freeride/all mountain riding whereas the capita green machine is more for freestyle/park/jibbing.

now for the never summer sl, im not sure if i want a smaller board for more freestyle oriented riding or a longer board for more edge hold and more all mountain riding.

my riding is typically split 50/50 and i currently have 1 board for each style, so i really could go either way here. i guess its a question of what kind of riding i want to do most but if u were in my situation, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

I'd probably go 155. I'm about 3" taller than you and 15-20 pounds heavier and I prefer 158/160 for all-mountain type riding.

cool thanks for that input. i was leaning towards the same. another quick question...do you think the 26 waist on the bataleon will be too wide for 10.5 boot (32 lashed)? i usually angle my bindings at +18 and -15, or +15 -15.

I'm not familiar with those boots, so I can't really say. Pretty sure plenty of people here ride those though, so someone should be able to help out there.
