I am 185 and ride a 159 and 163, have a friend who is 172 and rides a 166 powder board, there's a wide range, go with what works for you, the numbers are just rough guides.
Look for demos to try different sizes.

In the 12-18 months I've lost a lot of weight and become something of a bodybuilder so I've gone from a soft 220 to a hard 180. I have a 159 now (freeride) and I wanted longer before...and still want longer.
Personal preference. I am currently looking in the 161-165 range.
I saw a girl at A-Basin a couple weeks back who couldn't have been 5'2" 115 lb and she was riding a 158...and she rocked.

Board too big?
I got a 165 cm. board last year and then i lost weight and now im 205lbs. Im intermediate/advanced and mostly freeride. Is this board too big for me?
