Default rome flag 160

Hi, I am 6'2 and about 175lbs. I am trying to find a 2008 rome flag that fits me because I need a wider board. I am not sure if a 160 will fit or if I have to buy a 163? I really dont play around in the park or in powder, I just want to go fast and carve around on groomed trails...

any suggestions?

What is your foot size? I have the 163, but I am 223 pounds. You should probably go for the 160.

You should be worried about your weight and foot size, how does your height effect the pressure you put on the board?

Your height barely has anything to do with it. The ONLY reason taller riders should have longer boards is the fact that they have longer legs, thus needing the wider stance that longer boards give them. A 160 should be fine for you, maybe even smaller.

Just get the Flag 160, you will love it.
