Question Burton Board - Is this the right board for me??

Im looking at buying the board below in the next few days. Im an intermediate and havent really any interest in parks at the moment, im all about downhill speed!!

The size and width seem spot on for me (5ft 8 - 80kg - size 11 boot) but do you think its the right board for my style??

too short and the board is not freeride oriented. more of an all mountain freetyle. If you're into speed and carving a stiffer and longer board would be better.

That board will be sweet.

Its a sleeper freeride board, camber, medium flex.

for your height, the 156 will be a little more playful, good for many things.
