You woulda loved this board at loveland today, it made all the ones next to it look like kids decks. I'm pretty sure I could have paddled into surf on it.

I recently was talking to a shop owner in CO about trying out some boards... The moment I told him I had some basic BX/race experience (even though I specifically said I didn't want to recreate that feel) he immediately ignored my requests for a 155 and said I should be riding a 163... Took me a while to even let him consider offering me something as "short" in his eyes as a 155 for 145 lbs.

155 definitely. I am 195lbs and I ride a 158 SL for my splitboard and a 161 SL for my groomer board. There is no reason for someone your side to ride a board longer than 155 for anything
