I'm about your same size and weight (6'1" and 175 lbs) and my park board is a 154 evil twin. My powder board is a 163 undisputed, so I can see how you're pushing it on a 164 wide for anything other than deep powder.

as you know, the evil twin has a sintered base, so that may be something to consider (pro or con)...It's also relatively stiff for a park board. The Airobic is rumored to be very soft and the funk.kink in between the two, leaning on the softer side (funk.kink might be a good compromise)

Thanks for a fast reply! Yep, I probably should have picked a bit shorter Goliath. But it's still a fun board. It just sometimes feels a bit clumsy. Would you still describe the ET as a playful board, despite for its stiffness? I was thinking about 157 length in both, ET or fun.kink.

What size boots/feet you have? Just want to consider the heel/toe drag...

well, I had the 155 riot before and I liked the size, but it was just too stiff for me. I got the 154 ET because it's softer in the tips. If I would have got the fun.kink, it may have been in the 157 because it's significantly softer throughout the entire board than the ET.

I wear 11 (US) tennis shoes, but wear size 10 salomon boots (their sizes are a bit different than other brands). No heel/toe drag whatsoever on Bataleon boards.

The Goliath 161 would be my top choice for you. Such a fun board for what you are looking for and a great fit for your specs. STOKED!

That is what i gathered from your earlier post. The Goliath is amazing for the mix you are describing. Excess stiffness does not equal more fun in the backcountry. You (anyone) can charge hard on the Goliath and it will be there for you. It is one of those boards.
