hey men! its 260 lbs. I don't understand, why lots of people here on forum ride so short boards. with such a weight, better choose from 166+. better get 170+ stiff boards.
I consider something like
Ride Yukon 172 would be the best choice for you. (you mentioned couple of ride boards, i suggest you leaning to Ride)
NS Raptor or Raptor X
NS Legacy-R or even 174(i got that one)
Elan Vertigo 168(very stiff, but with your weight it'd be ok)
Unity Dominion (i remember they got 170 and 180cm decks)

PS. Juct checked that you're looking into freeride... Don't ever get a board that is not wide, and that is shorter then 165cm.
