Default Heya guys, need help for a freestyle board :)

Yoyoyo snowfans!
So, I am currently riding Kink Ride 2011/2012 snowboard, and Im looking to replace it for another freestyle board.

My first 3 picks were:
- Lib Skate Banana (but a bit pricey)
- K2 WWW (similar to my current Kink)
- GNU Carbon Credit (cheep banana)

Because I am buying my snowboard at the end of this season, when they get cheep, I didnt need to chose between them.

BUT, a problem appeared when I saw the new Ride Slackcountry!!!!
Now, I know that pro boarders are laughing at me right now, cause this is a freeride board, but my specs will clarify everything.

Hight 6'6'' (198cm)
Weight 254lbs (115kg)
Boots US 15 (EU 49.5 )

So, would Slackcountry 162wide (insane width), be a great freestyle board for tall people, or do I just need to suck it up, and keep riding 159w boards.

Hope to get some good pointers, especially an answer from someone who rides Slackcountry
