Ride Antic - Which size?

Hey guys

I want to buy a new ride antic board. i'm 6'4 and about 200 lbs. i mostly ride on groomers and from time to time some powder. i like playing with my board rather than going at high speeds. would you
recommend me length 162W or 165W for my purposes? why?

thanks for your help

You just picked the 162 yourself.

I'd go with the 162 as well if you're on groomers. If you go too short, though, you will have trouble with deeper powder.

Would that be the only advantage of the 165? Better in powder? Is there no better stability for a tall guy like me?

Stability won't really come into play for you.
