both my folks are 'off the boat' from Friesland (northern part of the Netherlands) and i'm 6' 7" but only about 210. My kids go to a private school where most of the people are Dutch as well and it's sort of a freak show of excessive height

I used to ride really long boards, 170+, but they just tire me out (not a big guy, just tall).

This year i'm on a Bataleon 158w, cant wait.

The best all mtn board I've ever owned, is the 161 Burton Malolo (the last year they had camber), but Burton discontinued the Malolo and replaced it with the Barracuda, which is basically the same board as far as setback, taper and feel, the only real difference is that the Malolo is a full cambered board and the Cuda has camber from the front binding to the tail and rocker from the front binding to the tip, it also has Burtons version of LIB's Magnatraction, Frostbite, I check the web and ebay every day to buy one, there was a 161 that sold yesterday on ebay for $350, I was pissed, cause I forgot the auction was over at 10 a.m.

My pick is the 161 (it rides bigger, 165cm) Barracuda or Craigslist for a good used Malolo, my buddy bought one off CL for $200 in brand new condition

6'1" and 240lbs here. I've been on a 163 legacy for the last 3 years and have loved it. I've got a 161 Cobra X on the way for this season, so I'll report back on how it goes. Overall though the Legacy has been spot on.

I am 6'4" I weight 235. I started off riding a 166 and now ride a 162 not much of a differance when u put both back to back maybe a half inch. I rode my friends 157 and had no prob with it. In my opinion the longer the board the faster the shorter the more playful in the park.

168 is huge... I like small agile boards... 164 is the longest length I'm willing to go
