How much do you weigh? A lot of people reccomend size based on your weight. Do you ride park at all or just all mountain?

What size boot? If you have over a size 11 then you will need a mid-wide to wide board. I would suggest getting a Never Summer Legacy-R in a 163 size. It's an awesome board.

That seems just about perfect for you. NS makes a quality board, but you'll have to put in the time to get the most out of it.

In short, that board won't hold you back.

EDIT: Where will you be riding?

Man picking out board sizes for people who are disportionately tall is hard. Normally at 185lbs you'd want something like a 158..but your so tall i dont know that would be long enough for a comfortable stance.

You cant go wrong with the Legacy-R

with a size 12.5 boot you will definitely need a wide board. The legacy-R is a wide board but feels as nimble as a regular board (good thing). Not trying to nutswing Never Summer but I'm just really happy with mine. You could also look at a Lib Tech Travis Rice 164.5... that's a mid-wide board and seems to have pretty good reviews. I almost got one of those.
