220lb. I think if its mainly for freestyle/park you could pull a 159. That would be good i think. You'll be fine with regular width. Some good boards to look at would be Burton, Nitro, Rome, Gnu, Libtech. Theres so many... If you narrow it down I'll be glad to help you pick from em. Do you have boots/bindings?

Some hot boards to check out that won't break the bank, good for freestyle, with good reputations. Also for sizes, I am similar in body type to you, and you won't need to ride anything much bigger than a 158 (I ride a 156, great for jibbing it up in the park).

Gnu Carbon Hi-Beam (Artwork on last year's models are cooler in my opinion)
Forum Youngblood
Burton Blunt
Nitro T1 (friend of mine just got it and loves it)
