Go for it, I am very happy with mine. It's a bit unforgiving but if you've been riding a while, you'll be fine, it's a fast, precise board. I find I catch an edge or two when I ride it if I have been on my other board for a few days - that board is a reverse cambered board.
Can't see the width being an issue; I am 185 and ride a 159. I was thinking of going up to 162W for more stability, have to do some demos to see what the turning difference is.
