Default Did I Make an Alright Choice?

ok... so i'm 6'4" and about 205 pounds and i've been riding for about 10 years now. I have size 13 boots so my board options are basically limited to all the wide boards out there. About a month ago i decided on a Burton Custom X Wide 164 board. Do you guys think that that size of board is alright for me? I've kinda been stressin about whether or not I should have gone for the 168 just because of my size but as far as my riding style goes, i'd rather be in the park or going off kickers rather than just bombing the mountain. The board is just a couple inches beneath my chin, but I think that's about where it should be if it's gonna be spending most of it's time in the park and stuff. Was going with the 164 an ok decision? I really don't wanna be bummed out, the board was frickin expensive.

If you really don't want to be "bummed out" then you ask these questions BEFORE laying out big bucks. Afterwards - you just go with it. If you don't like it - sell it on eBay!

I bought an Arbor A-Frame once. BEAUTIFUL board! But incredibly unforgiving - caught an edge every time when riding on icy groomed. All of the research I did still didn't give me a clue on that. So I sold it. Lost about $100... better than loosing all of it. Although it would have made a great piece of art on the wall!
