Default need some advice

hey guys,
I hope everything is going good. I just started out with snowboarding and I just have a question about my board. I'm about 6"5 or 6"6 and weigh 210-220 with boot size 13. I saw a board I liked from K2 on sale yesterday, but it was a 163 wide. I was just wondering if that would be too small for me and would it be worth to spend the extra money to get a bigger one. Also, it goes up to around my neck.

Thanks
Sam

Can't imagine that would be too small in the slightest. But people need to know what sort of board you are looking for! Where do you ride? What type of riding do you do? Experience with any other boards?

Hey, thanks for your replies. I do mostly mountain riding, never tried park. I've only really ridden once aswell.

Edit: the board I've been looking at is a K2 fuse wide, its a 163 but like I said its only up to the bottom of my neck. Should I just fork out the extra money and get a bigger one? Would it be worth it in the long run?

I would say you are at the mid-lower weight range of a 163 for an all mountain. I would say anything between 158-163 depending on what you were doing.

Well, the K2 fuse 163 wide is on sale for 179.99$ atm (regular 379.99$). Do you guys think I should get this board or get something better?
