Default Did I make a bad decision?

To start off, I'm just going to say that I love my new Sherlock, and I can't wait to get on it next winter.

I'm just a little worried about learning some more park stuff, because I got the 160 instead of the 158. (My dad thought it would be better as I'm still in the middle of a growth spurt...I thought boards weren't really determined by height.)

But yeah, did I make a bad choice? I'm about 50-50 leaning towards 60% all mountain park. I can't return the board or anything, but I'm just wondering. (The 158 also had an ugly black base, haha.) Also, I was considering selling my current board, but should I keep it? It's much shorter, but I forget the actual length. I think it's a low 150-range. It's camber though, and has a pow setback.

It would be helpful to know your weight, size and boot size.

Generally I can tell you that a difference of 2cm will be hardly noticeable. Meaning that the board won't hold you back in the park, compared to the 158.

2cm is less than one inch. You are so fucked.

Like they said above height and weight would really help. But I don't think the 2cm is going to make much of a distance unless you are going to get off of groomers and go into powder or going down some steeps.

Sorry, I just got the impression from other posts that a few centimeters made a huge difference. I'm about 150 lbs, and 5' 8"

Go by weight, not height (mostly).

It's a little long for your weight, at your weight I'd probably go even smaller, 154 or so. But fuck it. You got it, rock it. It'll be fine.

Kind of big for your weight for a park board. But you'll be fine.

Yeah, I know it's big but I'm just nervous that it's bad for learning park. I forgot to include my height and wait in the original post, so sorry about that :P. My dad insisted that I bought the bigger board. So, should I keep the 152 or sell it? (My old board)
