|blackbeard||The 160 sounds really long for you. I'm 185lbs and I ride a 159. At your size 152-154 sounds good.|

buying a new board, I have ran into an issue - which size of a board to get?
I am 176cm tall (5 feet 9 inches) and I weight 63 kg (about 138 pounds).
I can get either a 155cm (about my chin) or a 160cm (nose-level) board. I currently ride a 152cm board, however I tend to overturn a lot - that's why I want to get a bigger one.
I have a huge problem with overturning on the 152 board I have now. The moment I try to carve I literally make an instant 90° turn and stop dead.
On the other hand, is the 160 too long? I ride pistes and sometimes backcountry, so I don't really need a shorter board for tricks, however I am not really educated in this subject and would prefer advice from someone more experienced
Thanks a lot in advance
