I'm about 6'3, 175. When i started out i bought this nitro board for like 150 bucks, i think it was a target. It was a 161 wide (i'm a size 11). The thing was a tank, heavy as hell, but i could get it going pretty good. I suggest starting off with a heavy/cheap board. You learn on that thing, then the next board you get spend some more dough, and you'll be amazed how much easier riding is on a cheap board. it's kind of like ankle weights. you train with them to get better, once its time for the real deal, take em off and you fly.
