Machete and Sizing

I was looking to buy the Machete, I've heard good things, but was wondering if there was still washout at high speeds like other boards with rocker/reverse camber decks (I'm looking for a really aggressive/responsive board). Also I was wondering about the sizing, I prefer a mid range sized board, but tragically I have size 11.5 feet so I need a wide board. I'm worried I'll run into some trouble maneuvering it with my 5'11 150 pound frame but I don't really know because I have no experience.

the Yukon is more expensive but a super aggressive board. It has a much wider waist than the reg width Machetes /DH / DH2s.

Otherwise, 157W Machete might do you OK. >> Reviews | Trip Reports | Commentary
