Hello

Can i pull off a Salomon The Villain 155W for all mountain snowboarding, mainly jumps, jibs, carving, and a bit of pow? or is it too short for me?

Yes you can. It's a touch short, but you're really light for your height.

Well I'm no pow expert, but from what I've researched a longer stick is going to ride pow better than a short one, but I'm sure you knew that already. You're gaining surface area by going w.... At the end of te day, it's going to come down to preference. I'm 230 and rode a 164w this year cuz I didn't know any better. (thought I needed the w for my weight). Next year I'll be on a 161 regular. That longer board is going to be heavier, which will affect your edge transition time.

I'm about the same weight and shoe size. I actually rented a Villian for a day 2 weeks ago and really liked it. I had a 158 and it felt like the perfect length to me for basically the same needs as you.

I know the 158 wide would be perfect for my weight, but since the 155 wide is around 100 cheaper in the UK (different websites), id rather make due with the shorter board, and maybe focus on buttering, jibbing and jumps a bit more, as I've done mostly carving and pow until now.
