|chrisj||I guess this is my question, the board I am looking at has a 20.25″-26" stance range in both the 157 and 154. If I am going to ride at a 20.25 stance, do you believe I would be more comfortable on the 154 or would it make no difference?|

|wrathfuldeity||riding pow 8"+ then longer, otherwise whatever. Might gain more control if you widen your stance.|

Damn, you're the same height as me and a bit lighter and I ride 152/153's! I'd deffinetly downsize mate! The difference will take a bit of getting used to (I started on 155's and first time i rode a 152 I struggled) but now I dont think I'll ever go back!
Although depends how much POW you're going to hit etc, as obviously longer will be better in that situation, for indoor and park though, go shorter! HTH

Better to go shorter with narrow stance?
My stance is usually between 20 and 21. I am looking for a new board this year that will be mainly used for freeriding. I am 5' 10" 168 lbs and would normally ride a 157 or 158.
I am wondering if I would gain a little more control of the board if I downsized to a 154 or 155 since my stance is so narrow. I am not quite sure if the inch or so would really make a difference or not.
