Need wide freeride board

Hi.

I am snowboarding for five years on freestyle board now. My current board is Elan 158.

I'm from Europe, so I will write also values in cm, as also foots.

I have a problem, because my board is not wide enough. I am 190cm tall, so thats 6.2 foot and I weight 75kg, what is 165 pounds. My current board is 158cm long.

I would like to buy a free-ride board, about 160-165cm long and especially WIDE! My feet are quite big - 46(Europe number), so that's a bit more than 12 I think. I need a wide board, so my feet wouldn't look off the edges of the board so much as they do now(3cm).

My question is: which board do you suggest me to look for.

I am mostly driving on sky resorts, sometimes on "full snow", and every here and there make some trick and jump.

My trouble with this board is, that when I lye on my stomach, I slip down the snow, because I have my shoes over the edge ...
