At 195lbs, a 157 should be just fine. It all depends on what type of board you want, but in general 157 is not too big for your size. I'm not super familiar with the Darkstar, but I don't think it's a real stiff board so I'm not sure why you'd have problems.

What board did you have before? Size, flex?

I'll attribute the problem to user error, not the size of the board.

You probably just need to learn how to butter better.

Also, some boards are stiffer than others and don't butter as well. I'm not sure how stiff the Darkstar is. If anything, the stiffness of the board is more to blame than the size.

157 is not big at all for your size, even for a park board. I would say it's you and not the board.
