You are not really limited at all, the advancement in tech for boards has gotten so amazing that even as a bigger guy you can ride smaller boards with no problem.
You can ride 158-168 WIDE boards no problem at all.
Just start looking for boards with the width bigger then 260 and you will be fine, You seem to be only looking at brand name boards. Try looking at off brands, they will be a lot cheaper and pretty much the same lol
