Frankly, I don't think it makes any difference for the guy.

No. Taper is not just for powder. Most serious carving (and race) boards have some taper to help with the 'tail release' when coming out of the turn.

Bullshit. That is not a fact, it is nonsense.

All the straps look too long:
On the toe straps it looks like you are almost bottoming out.
Similar on the ankle strap - not many clicks left and you have not even tightened the boot!

Looks like the boots are not centered and you have way more heel than toe overhang. Also the straps look too long.

Is the heel cup all the way in/on the shortest setting? If yes, than the bindings...

The OP at 170lbs might be better off on the 160. I am between the 156 and the 160 at 155-150lbs.

The guy at 250lbs definitely needs the 164.

Pretty sure the Whitegold equivalent of the Camel Toe is the Shaka. The Flyer is more like the Goliath. So very different board, different profile, etc.
