Board length is affected by your weight not your height. the board dosent care how tall you are, only how much weight its trying to control over the snow. For your weight Id definatly go for something longer than a 157 unless you wanted it as a park oriented board. As for the custom I havent ridden an 08 but I did ride an 07 and I own a 2001 custom and they do ride very nice.

At your weight, I'd say at least a 162-ish or so
