158 too big?

Hey, I picked up a 158 Stunt a lil while ago. Ive ridden it once and liked it. It just seemed a little big when on rails/boxes. Was stable on jumps/groomers though. Im 6ft, 185lbs, sz12. Does anyone else ride 158 for mainly park around my size? Does it seem too big?

it seems okay. and you're right it's going to seem more stable but it's going to give you less movement.

it's a price you have to pay. either go with a longer board and have it be more stable or a shorter board to do quick maneuvering.

Im 5'11 at 155 and I ride a 157, I have no problem on boxes/rails the only thing i notice a difference between a 157 and lets say a 153 is butters seem to be a little tougher and spins slower but nothing drastic.

Thanks everyone. I was previously riding a 157 Rome Machine, and was originally looking for a 55or 56, but got a good deal on the 58 Stunt. It does feel good for all around, was just trying to get something lighter for spinning boxes. I spend most of the time in the park, but I guess id rather have a board thatll work ride outside if I want to. At least its still easy to press with the V rocker.

I would still be up for a trade towards a 155-56 mid-wide (255mm+) rocker board. Thanks again!!
