I got a Venture Zephyr 160 (26cm ww) this year and am stoked! Originally wanted the 164 but they were out of stock so I went with the 160, which is actually my shortest board with bindings. I'm 6'0" and about 180lbs in street clothes, for reference. So far I've had zero float issues and am really stoked on the board. Seems to handle high speed straight lines no problem and is a blast in steep trees. My solid board is a Burton Malolo 162 to use as a comparison. The zephyr is stiffer and super fun. Build quality is excellent and would buy another Venture in a heartbeat.
