Default Board length and weight.

Ok so I just bought a new board. I am around 6'1" and I weigh around 170-175lbs. Do you think a 155 an ok length if I plan to do mostly freestyle and pow and a little bit of park?

155 will be okay. You can go 158 if you plan on riding pow and bombing more. It also depends on what board you're planning to get. Boards with blunted tips will ride longer so you can downsize a bit more.

EDIT: Just saw that you already purchased the board. What did you get?
