go do your own research first, come back with a list and we will help you from there, wayyy too many options out there to tell you one or 2 to pick from, establish your own list of 4-6 and we will help you from there.
the search tool on here works awesome, as well as google... learn how to use it

You gotta let us know what you're gonna be riding too. Park, powder, all mountain, etc.

I would recommend the Flow or DC. See what other people say though and remember ultimately you gotta choose.

Yes i know, i just wanted some expierenced riders opinions because this is going to be my first board.

Also is weight really a factor in determining the size of a board beacuse some websites says 156cm for me and others say 160?

Whats your budget?

It's important, I am not exactly sure what to tell though because I never really have to worry about that, so I'm not sure if a bigger board would be better or a wide. If I was going just by your height I would say no bigger than 155, maybe a 153.
