Default First Board - Help!

Hi Guys,
I'm looking to buy a board, problem is the sizing...

I'm 6ft2 and weigh about 265lbs, Having problems finding the size as no where seems to be of any help with this and not many companies stock anything over 166cm

Do you feel like you need a board bigger than 166?

Don't look at that. Look at the company size charts they are more accurate to the specific board you're looking at. Personally I think you will be fine on a 166. I'm 6'3 225 and rode a stiffer 166 for 5 years. When I bought it I weighed 205, and I still have a hard time flexing it to get some pop out of it at my current weight, I could easily ride that board at 265 and be comfortable. You should be fine man.

If you could find a used lib tech skunk ape, that might be a good board to go with.

Check this thread, you're not really that big of a guy. I mean, you ain't little, but there's some actual Yetis out there riding.
