Board length

My eye fell on this board:
MISTRESS - United Brands - United Brands: Online Sportwinkel - Sports & Lifestyle

I kinda love it, but they only sell it in 155cm and 160cm (<wide only)
I don't want a wide board because I don't have huge feet.

I'm like 6'1 / 185cm tall, about 65kg weight. Kinda looking into doing more tricks and jumps. Not really expert, but you could say I am decent. Would the 155cm be too short for me?

For your weight, 155 isn't too short... Actually that's just about right. But if you don't need a wide board, why buy one? Do you just like the girl on it?

Get a custom build board exactly to your specs and pick your own topsheet if you want the look... Would cost a few hundred Euro more but at least you'd have a board designed for you and your riding.

Just my $.02 of course...

The 160 is the wide one, not the 155! Sorry for not making that clear.

thanks for your reply, appreciate it

I'm 5'9" 145-150 lbs (65-68 kg). I've been riding the 155 cm boards for years now and I think it is a good size. Go for the 155cm.
