I'm 6'3", and about 200lbs with a size 13 boot and I ride a 163w Heritage X. I think you will want the 163 as well. I thought it would feel big since my last few boards have been smaller, but it really doesn't.

Yeah I'd say the bigger of the two too. I'm 175 and ride around a 160+ now most of the time. Bought a 156 as a play board and it feels like a kids board!
