Hey Mike,It all depends on your riding style (and height/weight, of course). I'm 6'0" and 202 pounds, but I ride a 156 board, because I'm quite partial to shorter boards. If you judge the length you want in a board by how high it reaches on your body, mine is only up to the lowest part of my collarbone. If you like ripping pow, get the longest board you can, and if you're into jibbing and street rails, early 150s is where you're gonna want to look. Anywhere in between is a solid all-mountain/freestyle stick. If you ride the way I do (I'm a more of a freerider, but I'll venture into the park for some sessions from time to time) I'd go for the 156, but it's totally up to you.
