I'd put you on a 155/158.

Also, I wouldn't be looking at super flexible boards, if you're not very interested in butters / rails. They will chatter at speed and will not hole an edge well.

You should be getting a med-stiff board, something targeted more at All Mountain / Big Mountain.

I'm not familiar with many of those boards but WWW I know is a noodle. And any board will be too soft if you're in the upper end of the weight range for it.

Machete 155 would be okay but 158 would be better.
