Ultimately 3cm is not gonna make an enormous difference but there will be a slightly longer learning curve on the longer board because, well, because physics and also the fact that you haven't yet developed a mastery of your snowboarding muscle memory, proper technique, etc. If you can get it in a shorter like 161 I would probably trade in for the smaller size, but if you can't, don't sweat it.

perfect answer.

follow up:
where do you live/ride? do you want to jib rails/boxes?

Board size help

Hi am new to the forum, I am beginner to intermediate, 6'1 190-195 pounds. I just bought a rossignol krypto magtek 164 cm. just wondering if that board is too big for me? Should I be returning it for something small like 160-161? Any advise would be great! Thanks
