Cool big-ass boards for big-ass people

Hi, i currently ride a Burton Operator 164w and i have been noticing its getting a little old and such and its getting a bit short
I'm borderline 6'7" and weigh 220 pounds, my shoe size is fourteen, and i was wondering if there are any boards out there that i can get super long and super wide so i dont have and toe drag which has been a serious problem in the past on steep groomed runs, but can still be ridden well on groomed.

The Nitro Magnum is a beast as well, comes in bigger sizes and waist sizes up to 27.8. The Skunk Ape is also a solid recommendation (26.8 Waist on all models I do believe) . The Magnum is a camber board, while the Skunk Ape, is going to use the C2BTX banana rocker.

More Info: Magnum | NITRO SNOWBOARDS

Prior MFR and AMF.
The MFR 168 extra wide has a waist of 27cm.
I ride an MFR 162 with traditional camber and it's a pretty fast stick.

I have a couple friends around that size that ride Ride Fleetwoods. It's a great board for how inexpensive it is, and pretty damn wide.

The Nitro Magnum and Elan El-Grande if they still make it are probably the widest you can get. Neversummer Makes the Legacy in 170 and 174cm I believe with 27.0 waists 166 is 26.8
