Default What size board should I get?

I just started snowboarding and I've been riding a 160. I'm 6'1" and 140lbs. I was told a 157 would be better. So should I stick with a 160 or go with the 157?

I think a 160 should be fine if thats what you have been riding. If you feel out of control or like the board is getting ahead of you, then you my want to go down a notch. But, more important then length is flexibility. You want something a little more flexible as a begginer.
