I'm slightly bigger at 6'1" and 175 lbs and ride a 154 for hardpack only days and a 163 for everything else (I like being used to my big board when it dumps huge). The 154 is skatey fun, but I wouldn't want to be stuck with it in anything over a foot deep.

The 163 handles up to about chest deep pow, but I can still spin 360s and other tricks on it....point is, it's more rider skill/experience than board.

I also wear a size 11 shoe without riding a wide board, so unless you wear a 12+, you probably don't need the extra waist width.
