Right snowboard size?

So I am 6 '2 at 210 pounds. I just ordered a 162cm Wide board. Is that too small for me?

go on your snowboard manufacturer's website and pull out the specs. it should give you a weight range. it's hard to say without knowing what board you're talking about.

Perfect size man! Should be just fine for you all the way up to 220 lbs. I'm 6'3 220 and I'm currently on a CC and it's my favorite board to date.

Could be regular size, not wide, if you wear smaller than size 12 boots. Lenght is perfect.
