Never Summer SL board size

The board size for my cambered boards is 160. Getting an SL with RC tech, so what size should I get? 158 or 161?

Still thinking of the Heritage, but leaning towards SL...

How much do you weigh, boot size. I ride a 158 sl and weigh 185 and do very little park with it, if that helps.

I am 5'11 around 190 lbs and i ride a 158 SL. I used to ride a 163 Burton Superhero (cambered) but that was a pure freeride board. I think I can even go 156 if I decide to use it in the park more.

I wouldn't go too small, beacuse the RC Tech will make it seem as nimble as a board much smaller. I went from a 164 camber to a 161 RC and am very glad I didn't go to a 158

yeah, forgot to include weight. 6'2" 190

I spend most time in trees and moguls, looking for natural kickers. Sounds like a 158 would be good.

I'm 5'10" 160 and picked up a 158. I LOVE it. I use it as my all mountain board and really don't play in the park with it at all. I have another board for that. I was going to go 155 until I rode a friend's 161 F1. After I was able to throw that board around with no problem I decided on the 158 for my SL. I have NO problems throwing it around in the trees.

Now the 158 is sold out, didn't last long Either get the 161 now, or wait for a 158 next season. 2012 graphics are similar, but with a black base.

Get the 161. I'm 6'2" and 200 lbs. I have both sizes (159 & 161). I got the 161 second. I rarely ride the 159 anymore. The reverse camber makes the board seem a couple sizes smaller than a regular cambered board anyways and you won't regret having the extra length.
