Default Extra width


I ride mostly groomers, but will go into the trees and pow every time I get a chance and will try to jump small bumps. I also like some buttering from time to time and bombing down the hill.

I can choose between a '08 Custom 158 and 162 Wide. I am hesitating because I imagine the extra width (which I don't need) on the 162 will make it harder to maneuver and heavier. Is that true for my size? Will the extra width be noticeable?

My details:

6 feet tall
190 pounds
US 10,5 boot size

PS: I'm used to ridding smaller boards (I started on a 156).
