Default 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?

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