163 is pretty hugeeee for in my opinion..especially if you even think of looking in the parks direction, let alone go. look for like a 155 at most, im 5'7 160 and i learned on a 149 and now im on a 154 but i prefer smaller even on my all mountain board, my park board is a 150 and i find myself riding that a little more often then not..

thats probably because less people are looking for a 161..and didnt even notice the clickers at first but those things are nearing extinction for a reason..
