Default Size question

Hi I'm wondering if a 158cm would be to short for me.
There is a board I want on sale.
I'm 6"2 185lbs
All mtn freestyle

Haven't you heard? Size doesn't matter. The girls all told me.

Seriously though, you're in the ballpark.

It depends on the board (camber profile, stiffness, effective edge, etc..)

Don't hate but It's the burton custom camber. I would prefer a 160cm but might settle with this.
Any suggestions for a similar or better board I would prefer camber.

I should have something a little longer according to their weight range.

I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference that 2 cms makes, might feel slightly more stable at high speed but that would be about it, I wouldn't hesitate about getting the 158 vs the 160 if it saved me a hundred bucks for example.
