what size gnu board?

im set on getting the gnu riders choice but am unsure on what size?
my current board is a 156 but i think i might need to go longer
heres why.... im 5'10" and 205 lbs. intermediate rider
my board seems slow compared to people i board with
might be me but i think its a combo of both
my board seems wobbly when flat at higher speeds
my brother is 4 inches taller and about 40 lbs lighter and rides same length

gnu rc comes in 157.5 and 161 i believe. can anyone help?

Depends on what you are using it for?

If you want mobility and plan on freestyle go 157.5 would do, but there is no pop. I use to have it at 210 lbs. its blunt edge so it has more length

If you want pop and charge down the mt go with the 161.5.

If you want to just bomb mt all day , no tricks and stuff get the billy goat at 159.

What feet size do you have?

Its not height but weight.
