I'm got my eye on a new board for the season, but I don't know which size I should get. I am 72kg and 6 foot 3, mainly ride on piste and through the trees. Which size should I get: the 158 or 161?

Do you freestyle, do spins or any park? If so 158, maybe smaller if freestyle is the main focus.

Is carving and speed more your thing? If so the 161 would be better.

At 85 kilos I would still want to know what your riding style is and go with the above guidelines.

The type of board you are considering is also a factor here.

I don't ride in the park at all, though I do some jumps of natural features. Speed is definitely more my thing, but I need the board to be able to turn quickly through the trees.

I'll be 85kg at atleast by the time I stop growing and I want the board to last for more than 1 season . The board I'm going for is the jones mountain twin
