I guess I'll have to let function go before fashion. Alternatively just bulk up a bit; I could use another 5-10 lbs of muscles...

Sboskov damn after reading this, its making me think i should of gone even larger than my 158 machete...

cc898 Nobody said it had camrock, I said boards with camrock and SIMILAR profiles, as in early rise tech.

Anticrobotic Ok! Thanks a bunch guys. (Although I was hoping for the vote to fall on the lovely purple 165...) ^_~

If you're doing more groomers than anything then you could think about the 159
Is that size recommendation for songa or Anticrobotic?

Supra Ah, just saw your weight. Def 162

Oh how I wish there was a place to demo within 1000 miles from where I live...
Oh, I think the 162-165 range is just fine for you based on your weight and riding profile.
My comment was purely in relation to width and your shoe size - basically the 162 is plenty/perfect in that respect and you do not need the added width of the 165.

Supra Haven't read the whole thread, but I rode the 159 with size 10 burton boots, and was fine. 11's on the 162 will pose no problems
