I'm 6'2, will the 163 work for me? I like to go have fun in the park so i was thinking just a little shorter than normal for easier spins and such, but the powder is where i love to be and i'll spend most of my time in it if its there on the mountain.
Anything around a 162-163 should work out for you height, considering the terrain, you will be riding, i would just adjust your stance when you change terrain (mountain, park, whatever) to make sure you get optimum shralpage. Hope i could be of help, Goood Luck
in addition to riding style and terrain ridden, board length is based on rider weight, not height (a board doesn't know or care how tall you are; a board's flex will however change depending on how much the rider on top of it weighs)... tell us your weight and we can suggest a good length for what you want to do on the hill...
I'm 6' and weigh 190lbs and I use a 161 Ride Control. I would *GUESS* that the 163 would work for you, provided that you aren't as skinny as a rail or anything. If you weigh a fair amount less, I might consider dropping into the upper to mid 150's.
