ahh... I'm with 235 lbs and see no reason to go with smaller boards. I got two sticks: 179 and 180, but still advising you to get at least 168.
ps. huge is 195 or something )

receltly seen 168x wide on ebay.
You won't get much problems with extra 3-4cm, but you get alot of fun with it.
May be i'm freeride and carving rat, so i'm voting for longer one

looks like you're right.
BTW: 164W Custom X have a suggested weight range like 170-210lbs. so it works best with 190lbs.
Do you still think that with 265 you can stay with 163-165?
