Those calcs are not correct as well and I believe they only apply to camber boards (not the hybrids in the NS line). I would knock at least 2 or 3 cm off any measurement it gives you.

I think at 6 feet tall, your weight is higher up, so with a 151 floppy ass Arbor Draft, you will start to butter and then have the board shoot out from under you.
So you know more than the manufacturer then?!?

Never rode a skunk ape but is it as stiff as a Custom X? If not I'd suggest a stiff board for a 240 pound guy. Otherwise it's going to be a wet noodle...
