Default 148cm snowboard for 5'11 (180cm) and 160lb (73kg)

There is an 'Endeavour Colour' snowboard on sale in 148cm for only 80 on a website I like at the moment and I am wondering whether the board will be ridable at such a short length? I have a 155cm Ride DH2 at the moment which is much too stiff to ride comfortably in the park and I want a softer board for freestyle, would this board be okay or just too short?

Too short unless you're planning to only jib with it.

It's also available in 160cm, would this be okay for jibbing and jumping or too long?

160cm is too long for you unless its a freeride/pow board. Stick with 151-155 for park, get a softer board if you want to jib more. You could ride a 148 but it wouldn't be helping you at all.
