why not a raptor? or even a premier? NS makes those in 169-170 length in regular width. i bet you'd destroy on one of those!

i ride a 158 SL, and weigh about 165... i don't think that 3 more cm is going to help you out on that one. but the raptor or premier would be sick for you i think... even the summit comes in long lengths, and i think that you would really benefit from the added stiffness of those boards. the SL would be like a park board for you...

I mentioned the raptor earlier, in a 169. I wouldn't suggest the f1 though. I had one, was a great carving board but I found it slow transitioning from toe to heel and heel toe. Took a lot more effort tto initiate a turn than the cobra does.
