when i started riding, i started on a friends board which was a 156 and thats what i like best...but also dont think its all that small being that i consider myself a freestyle rider, 50% park and 50% using the whole mountain as my park
using the calculator below, it puts me on a 156-158 for freestyle riding...

|orangeandmaroon||OP, keep the board. I'm assuming it's this years Infinite? I have last year's reverse camber and love it. It's a great all mtn board. The only thing, like others said is that it that it may seem a tad long for you. Other than that I think you will love it.|

|Justin||wow that seems really small to me for 210lbs, im 200lbs my park deck is 158w and my all mountain is 163w. what board do you ride at 156?|

|threej21||my only thoughts are that, at 188 lbs, a 162 is pretty big. that might be the only reason it would be hard to turn and manuever. For comparison, i weigh 210 lbs and ride a 156 board|

Oké If you guys don't think my vacation would be a pain in the ass (literally and figuratively) I think I will keep the board.
Thanks a lot!
If there are other people who can help me, please do!

|Justin||i think you will probably be fine. you could get the merc if you like and it would probably work if you wanted but i think you will be fine.|

I've teach myself the snowboard basics in an indoor hall because we haven't mountains in the netherlands.
After a couple of afternoons practicing (5 or 6 times) I went on a ski trip for seven days. I borrowed a board and boots from my cousin.
So I have one week real field experience

|Justin||have you never ridden before or is it your 5th time out? I own the board and like it alot. It might be a touch on the stiff side for a first timer but if you have been out a few times before you will probably be fine and you won't need to upgrade when you get better. The board is poppy, carves very well, and is damp.|
