With size 11 boots you may be able to get away with a standard width board depending on the actual footprint of your boot and the angle of your stance. Also, at 160 lbs, the 158 may be a little long for a freestyle board which would make it feel more stiff so the Royale could still be an option if you go with a smaller board...just something to think about.
I've got size 12 boots and after researching for a new wide board I ended up with the GNU 11up which is labled as a freestyle board but has enough stiffness for all mountain riding. I looked at the Royale quite a bit and if I remember correctly, the 11up may have been a little more flexy.
Also take a look at the Rome Slash, Ride Dose, K2 After Black, GNU CHB wide, and I know Lib Teck has one or two freestyle boards with wide options, just can't remember which...maybe the Dark Series. These are all wide boards so they will be a little wider than the Royale which is a mid-wide.
