I have a 155 Ride Machete. Would it be better to go with the 166, or is it safe to get the 156? It has to fit boots (8.5) and bindings, as well.
The 156 will be all good, don't even worry about it. This will fit all your gear no problem.
always get size larger than is your board.. i ride 158 and have the 166..the extra space is worth it
