Yup, 185 in my birthday suit so with all the gear around 205. Thanks for the advice and the size chart.

Yes they take the death!
That's another reason for me to stay at the upper end with my size 11 boots. The waist for the 165 is 26.2 including the death grip, so without it it should be somewhere around 25.8, and the 162 around 25.4. That's not a lot.

Actually it is plenty. In fact, it is more than you need.

Really? So what size would you recommend then?

Oh how I wish there was a place to demo within 1000 miles from where I live...

Haven't read the whole thread, but I rode the 159 with size 10 burton boots, and was fine. 11's on the 162 will pose no problems

Oh, I think the 162-165 range is just fine for you based on your weight and riding profile.
My comment was purely in relation to width and your shoe size - basically the 162 is plenty/perfect in that respect and you do not need the added width of the 165.

Ok, just read the thread. For starters people, the board does not have camrock, it's freeride fk. Similar in the general sense but feel different. Yes, the board rides shorter because of the rockered tips. Since you mention Japan, I'd say if you're going some place with lots of pow, then 162 would be good for you. If you're doing more groomers than anything then you could think about the 159

Is that size recommendation for songa or Anticrobotic?

Ok! Thanks a bunch guys. (Although I was hoping for the vote to fall on the lovely purple 165...) ^_~
