2013 Burton Custom 158 vs 160

Hey guys, first post here. Just trying to decide between the 2013 Burton Custom 158 vs 160. Height's 5'10" (178cm) and current weight is 69kg (152lbs). I rode a 157cm last season but will be increasing my weight to 80kg (176lbs) over the next 12 months so not sure which size to go for.

I'm an intermediate rider and enjoy freestyle/all mountain riding (don't do parks at all) if that helps. Thanks so much!

i have a 58 and im 6'2/200 lbs. i had no trouble with the board and since it was my only board i used it for everything( pow, park, jumps, backcountry ect..) and it worked fine, it is an all mountain board a little too stiff in the park. I think the weight wont be an issue. keep the 58.

I'd also say go with 158. I have a 2003 Custom 158 that I still ride on occasion, and it's great even a decade later. I'm 200lbs and it handled my weight just fine.

I vote 158 also.

My all mountain, freestyle, sometimes park board is 157. I'm 207lbs at 6'. My all mountain freeride board is 161. My dedicated free ride board was 164. I like slightly shorter boards, but 158 seems right on the money for you compared to 160.
