158 will be fine for you. I'm a little heavier than you and have a 164, but I could've gone with the 158. The new addition of the 161 is probably the perfect solution for me, but I have no complaints about my 164.
The Charlie Slasher has huge setback, massive taper, and that big old soft rockered nose keeps you floating no matter what. You'll be fine with a 158.
Yeah I got a 160 Lando this year and really feel like that is my size but I can't ride the thing switch for the life of me. It's weird. But the float is great.
Having never ridden a Pow board, I want to give one a try, but 164 seems crazy for where I live.
well maybe just use the lando...can't really ride a pow board switch...though I have done so with the CS on groomers. Anyway a pow board is for easy pow riding...just a right tool for the RIGHT conditions....have it set on my regular stance and angles but in the middle of the CS inserts....just stand up and cruise on the deep and even goes on the low angle...where as my other boards would be sinking under my heft.
