What size board should i be looking for?

Hey, first off i know you guys get these types of questions a lot so i'm sorry for adding to it, but i don't have a choice as i don't know where to turn for information lol.

Anyway, i'm not sure what size board i should be looking for so here's my info

5'11
160 lbs
size 10 -10.5 boot
All mountain type of rider, a bit of everything.

I'm currently looking at buying a size 154 Burton Custom. Is that too small? or just right?

Thanks guys!

154 would be for more freestyle riding. If you're set on the Custom, get the 156 for all mountain riding.

I am the EXACT as you, besides the 5' 11" possibly being a 6" (Haven't measured myself in a while)

I do not like to go in the park very often, and personally, I decided on a 157. Anywhere from 154-157 would suit you very well.

You would want to get around a 156-157
