I've got 2 inches and 35 lbs on you and I rode the 158 SL most of last season. For resort riding you should be fine on a 155 (unless you have personal bias against shorter boards. blahblahblah preferences and all that)

Depends on how fast you are going... Never Summer boards do tend to be stiffer and more stable than other brands (especially compared to another 156).

I'm just going by the research I've done on the Internet. According to charts, you should be on a 164-166CM. But I guess it's all personal preference like you said. I just want something that works so I don't have to end up purchasing a new board a couple weeks later. And yes, I will be resort riding, not all-mountain riding.

How do I know how fast I'm going? I do want stability at mid-high speeds.

I just PM'd you about a couple different hardly-used boards that I could sell you--check your Private Messages...

Also, I forgot to mention in that PM that I've also got a set of hardly-used bindings that I can sell you as well...

(...too much gear...)

Generic board sizing charts in reality aren't very helpful because there are many factors in a boards construction that affect its stability beyond just length.

Here are a few questions that will help us figure things out:

1. Where do you ride? (New England, California, Colorado, Utah, etc...)
2. Do you ride on the groomed trails or off-piste and in the trees?
3. If you do like riding the groomed trails... do you like trying to find the steepest groomed trail on the mountain and blasting down the mountain as fast as you can?
