i would try sticking out the rest of this season on the board you have now. then you can either grab end of season deals on this years boards or wait till fall for next years. if you can't wait the grip will be pretty cool, you shouldn't have a problem with it.

what is your wieght/shoe size?

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

yea the 157 should be much better than the 164. actually i would definetly ditch that stick and get a new one if you plan on doing a lot more riding this season, its probably holding you back a bit.

if you dont want to spend as much money heres a few suggestions:

Flow Era
Rome Reverb Rocker
Signal Park Flat
If you can find and Arbor Blacklist in 157 get that is sposed to be one of the best out this year
