Default Need help on a board sizing. Ride agenda 159.

Hello i'm newbie, just got my account validated. this is my first post. Need help with board sizing. Just got ride agenda in 159. And in doubt if i made a right decision. I am 5'11" and around 185 pounds with foot size 9-9.5 (depends on boots). Sizing chart on a board says 130-180 pounds for 159. I thought sizewize i am good. But some of my friends say i need to get a shorter board and go with same board but 156( which says 125-175 pounds on manufacture's board chart)and some say leave as it is, so it will be good on powder days and freeride(all around). So what you guys say? I know there are a lot of people here that been boarding for a while and they know something about sizing and all other stuff. And most important thing is this going to be my all around board, for everything. Since i just started boarding, i am looking at versatility, so i can use board on powder days, in park( not for tricks though), groomed runs, pretty much everywhere. Looking forward for you replies, thank you.

I think you got the right size. No worries.
Im 58 130lbs and ride a 159 wanting to go longer. Im not a park rat and not into tricks. Snowboards are for carving and bombing for me.
I reckon people ride waaay too short boards for their size. Good choice on the board, too. Start with a Centered stance and on powder days move the binding to the tail. (Setback) Spend time on working out the best stance angle and width. Maybe later, youll be wanting something over 165 for sure ...

Are you a beginner? If so the 156 will be a little softer and should be a little more forgiving. If you are not a beginner then choose the longer one if you freeride and ride pow more and choose the shorter one if you are in the park a lot.

im 13 5'5" 120lbs wear a size 11 boot and i ride a 153. alot about the size of a board comes down to how it feel and personal preference. If the board feels good to you great! if it doesnt feel right than you can always take it back to wherever you got it...

Thanks guys for a quick reply. I decided to stick with this board and see how it's going to work out. I will take it to slopes on a weekend and i will see if it is good for me.
