What size snowboard
Here's some info on board sizing and width. The second link explains why.

I recommend looking for some low volume boots. I know my Salomon F22s are at least a full size in overall footprint smaller than comparable boots - i.e. my 9.5 has the footprint of most 8.5s.
Like david z said, you're going to have issues with toe and/or heel drag with just about any board. Low volume boots would really help - much more so than the 0.2cm of width the longer board has, that's nothing.

If it's any help to you.
I'm 163 lbs, 5'8. I ride a 160 and it handles perfect. I like to bomb, and bomb it does!

|zakk||IMO 164 is too big for you unless you're a bomber or ride only waist deep pow|

|MountainMan||If you're not into jumping(not just limited to parks), and just want speed I think the 164 would be ok. I think weight is just as important as height, and I'm only 175lbs and my freeride board is a 158. What have you been riding? Its always nice to demo first when possible. The nice thing about buying a big name brand (if you must buy Burton), is that there has to be someone near you that rents or demos them. As far as your width, I don't think you'll notice 2mm much, but bring your boots with you and have a look.|
