I'm 180 lbs and I ride 155 to 160cm if that tells you anything, if I were you I would be on a 150 to 156 for you.

Yes, technically it is too big. Have you ridden it? If you can ride it fine size doesnt matter. (thats what she said)

General idea is its a tad big (153-155 for groomers), but you also need to figure in your aggressiveness, flex of the board and snow/terrain conditions. So...if you are aggressive, the board is softer and the poo is deep...then its a fine thing.

You can ride it fine but you will have more fun and be able to do more things on a 155 or 156 IMO. 156 is still plenty big enough to float in the pow at your weight.
You'll be able to turn quicker and have more control over your edges with less effort.

Yeah I've ridden it 3-4 times I just got it in Febuary this year, i seem to do just fine on it, my old board was a 152 and I have noticed a huge difference on my jibbing, turning etc. Its more difficult but also I can handle it

Yes i kno it's a guys board but i got the board for an amazing deal that i couldn't pass up. I've been riding for 3 years now and live in oakland county, mostly ride at Holly ans Pine Knob.

That's going to be a fast board at Holly or PK..
