Cool K2 Zeppelin 161cm or 164cm?

So I'm looking to buy a K2 Zeppelin 2009, but I'm a little torn between either getting a 161cm or a 164. I'm relatively new to snowboarding only 3 years in. This will actually be my second snowboard I ever bought. Now I'm a pretty big guy, 6 foot 260 pounds(bodybuilder) I've done the snowboard calculators and they all suggest my range to be around 165cm, however my board now is a 162 and it seems fine although mind you it is my first and only board so I have nothing to judge it against. I'm an intermediate who rides mostly freeride. I was just about to get the 164cm before my brother suggested to just stay closest to what I had. I'm worried that if I do get the 164cm I'll lose some maneuverability, but I'm also worried that if I get the 161cm it'll be to sluggish. If it helps I ride in the east coast so there isn't that much powder here. consequently the 164 is $100 cheaper, should I consider that? help me out here

Get the bigger board. I'm about 60+lbs lighter then you and rode a 164 last season. I did perfectly find..... Your gonna need that extra bit of size because of your weight.

Lose some weight, then you can get the smaller board. Tubby ( =

you won't notice the 3cm difference between the 161 and 164, but you may notice the $100 difference in your wallet
