Default Ideal waist width for freestyle riding

I was wondering what everyone's take on the effect waist width has on freestyle performance. I recently trashed my Arbor Blacklist in the park and had to switch back to my old board which is about 8cm narrower. I really liked the Blacklist which is a midwide board and felt comfortable on any jump I could find but now that I've switched back to my old board, about 8cm narrower, I couldn't help but feel like the board was a little unstable when hitting jumps. Maybe I just need some time to adjust to the difference, or maybe the jumps they had setup were just poorly built (a common occurrence). What kind waist widths does everyone else look for in a good freestyle/jump board? For the record I'm 6'1 205 lbs and wear size 12 boots with a 15/-15 stance.
