Ride Machete ?:

I'm 6', 215 lbs. Looking at the Machete, 161W vs. the 162 reg.

I'd like to use it for all-mountain/park play. Not so much in to rails but like airs.

I ride NS Legacy 163W right now, it's an old board and hard to compare I guess, but it is (like most old NS boards) very heavy swing weight.

Would you expect similar difficulties with either of the 161W or 162 reg Machete?

61w should be a go ride for you.

my bad. 11. I've ridden reg. waist boards without incident, but I'm really accustomed to that wide NS of mine
