You're going to want at the very least a mid-wide board and nothing shorter than 163cm. I am 6'2" 230 I run the 2012 NS Legacy and Cobra X both at 163cm. I have yet to actually ride the Cobra but I love the Legacy great all mountain freestyle board plenty of pop and flex with great high speed stability I've never got any high speed shakes and landings are smooth as butter. Most of the major board manufactures are on the same page as far as base components go in their comparable price ranges so it really boils down to your style of riding and what you intend on doing with the board. With you having a little more LBS than I do the longer, stiffer board is good choice, comparatively it's only about an 1.5" difference but the increased stiffness helps. Sorry no experience on the Ride. I'm sure someone here has though. GL, be safe and most of all have fun.
