Smile Ride Machete 2013 - Size advice

Hi,

I am about to pick up my first board, a Ride Machete 2013, but am a little stuck on which size to get. I wear a size 10US Nike Vapen and weigh around 85kg/187lbs. At the moment I'm deciding between a 158 or 160 regular width. I mostly ride all mountain with a bit of park thrown in (looking to do more park stuff this year).

Would my weight make the 158 too buttery? A little worried that a 160 or 162 might be a little long.

Also planning on pairing this with Ride Revolt bindings.

Any advice would be awesome, keen to make the right choices on my first board.

Cheers

Awesome, thanks. Easy to get flustered over what to get.

Time to get an order in.

I'm 6'3" 205 and I have a Never Summer SL 164. Used to rock an Option Supercharger 168 a LONG time ago. I think the 160 would be right on for someone who weighs 187. Just my $.02

Delfunky - we have similar builds.

I'm about 6', 190lbs. I rock a Never Summer Proto CT 158 and it has never felt too buttery.

I would go with the 158 - Good luck man!

This. Machete isn't a buttery board. The 158 will work well.

Cheers fellas. All good advice to keep in mind.

I'm still leaning towards the 158. The guy in the store I bought my boots from said he rode a machete all last season and was a little above the weight range for his too. He suggested the 158.
