Default Looking to upgrade. Board advice needed

I am a fairly big guy (5'8" 275 lbs) and I'm looking to upgrade my ride. For the past five years I have been riding a Burton Se7en 162 and I'm looking to upgrade. I was thinking about picking up a 159 GNU Park Pickle. I wear a size 12 boot and I am concerned about toe drag and how much difference the 3cm will make. Is this a good/bad choice for a person my size?

i imagine you are looking for a fun park board. if i were you i'd look for something in the 157-8 range but make sure it is stiff as hell, otherwise you will probably end up riding a noodle. the GNU Danny Kass 158 is also a true freestyle board and similar in shape to the Park Pickle but stiffer. i wear size 12 boots and had no issues with toe drag on the Danny Kass. I hear that the Never Summer boards are even stiffer than the Danny Kass so you might be better off looking at their range...

3cm can make a big difference but it's better to try before finally buying it.
