You'll have more stability and be faster on a 158, but a shorter board will be easier to control. Also, a shorter board is more likely to get squirrely at higher speeds.

i got the 08 blunt in 158.. im 5'10 160 .... its so flexible and easy to ride... im still a beginer but i feel like i saw a dramatic change in my ability after i switched to a board with more flex... maybe in the future ill try a longer and stiffer board.. but i love just riding the Mt. looking for natural features to have fun with. (sometimes i go into the park)



those are from last year.. i actually have Rome targa bindings on there
