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)

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.
Thanks. My intentions were to get a smaller board, currently in the process of losing weight (63lbs in 4 months) so wanted to get something that i could keep for a few years.. i'll definitely get a bit longer board..

again. thanks, for the advice

I somewhat agree. If you aren't hitting the park at all I'd try and maximize your effective edge a bit more. I'd give the 166w slayblade a try.
Thanks for the reply.. I'm starting to lean toward the slayblade myself, i haven't really found many reviews on the highlife out there...
