Question Boards for Sasquatch

I am looking for some advice on wide boards. I started to ride in the UK at indoor snow domes. Thin layer of ice over concrete. Toe drag was not an issue at that point!

I have size 11.5 feet 190lbs, ride freestyle and have never ridden a wide board. I am now living in Canada with the craziest amount of snow outside riding a cheap board 159cm getting loads of chatter and toe drag.

I am progressing with my boarding skills and as I progress further, I find that toe drag is now an issue.

After reading other posts on the forum I spent most of yesterday looking into the Burton King 159w, Santa Cruz Largo 159w(the one I am leaning to!), CHB Magne-Traction Snowboard (which I like but am wondering if it might be too much for me right now?) also looked at the Rome Manual.

Any thoughts and help welcomed.

Thanks
