2013 Fun Kink
 
I'm 220 pounds, shoe size 12.

I was wondering if you guys think it's ok if I buy a 157 fun kink, its width is 253.

The 159W and 160 aren't sold here in Iceland...

if it helps, I'm 175 pounds / mens size 11 (US) shoe and am fine on my Evil Twin 154 cm waist width of 250.

Not to seem like I am going against everyones selection for bataleons...but check the GW. It's 3-4-3 compared to the fun.kink which is 3 straight through. You're getting the carbon so it's still really poppy and super strong in the nose and tail while its still forgiving on presses and shit. It is jib park classification but can still stand up on jumps.. Rode both of these decks last winter and they were totally different in that I could flex the shit out of the FK torsionally but the GW still felt awesome.

157 GW 255mm waist.
156w GW 264mm waist if you are worried about your feet being too large.

When I give this advice it is just my personal opinion as I have ridden the entire line. We got the same stats as well, MSH. My boards of choice are either the ET or the GW, 57 in both...but like I said up above, there is a 56 wide in case you are worried about toe-drag

If you have any more questions feel free to PM me.

Thanks for the input guys. Anyone else that think I should be OK on a 157 board?
