...I'm 190lbs 6ft ....been cranking it since 1999 ...owned Doz's of boards mostly burton and I've found 159-161 to be my perfect size on a (camber board)
yet at the burton "boardfinder" they recommend 163 ?... have brought 57-58 boards before but ended up selling not long after few days as they just don't have the stability I like ...but thats me I'm more of a charging surf/freerider that likes natural freestyle (no rails)......I could see the more novice rider's or pure skate/freestylers boarding enjoying the 56-58 size ....I do think height would effect things i.e 6,3 foot 150lbs on a 151 etc,,,, stability aren't going be flash free-riding IMHO
Currently got a 159 JJ burton .....sold my 58 supermodel last year thinking a 161 custom be a great second board
