You don't want this board that wide with size 11, even if their chart says so. That is why you're not liking that much, not the length. At 220 pounds, you should be on the regular width 164. 160 maybe, but that is small for your weight on this type of board. If your "fun" means doing presses and stuff like that, this is definitely the wrong board for you altogether. I like to have some "fun" sometimes also, but I have a completely different style board for when I feel like messing around.
I have ridden the 168 at less than 220 pounds and it is good at that weight. Unfortunately, they no longer make anything that long. If I get back down to 190-200, I will probably look into getting a 164. But their current sizes suck. 165 wide is a little wide for size 12, while the longest regular width x is slightly narrower than my 168 (25.4) which is already almost too narrow but just about right.
