Default Women's boards for a heavy rider

Hiyas. I posted a thread asking advice on 3 specific men's boards but everyone told me to get a womans board. I'm on the heavier side and most women's boards don't go up past like 155 that I have seen and their weight ranges are all lower. Should I get a guys board or are there actually women's boards that can support my weight out there that I am just overlooking (and aren't hideous bright pink)? i am 5'6" 180-190 lbs. thanks in advance

Unless you have a freakishly small foot like a women's six or something get a dudes board. It's not going to know you don't have a dangle going on up there.

I agree with BA, get a men's board. What kindda riding do you do. It'll help with the board selection (sorry, too lazy to search )
