509-pow 300pounds, 6ft2. I ride a lib tech Travis rice 164.5. Love the board. I have yet to have a problem with it. From groomed runs to nature jumps and love it in the powder.

john doe I wish I was big enough for a skunkape because the graphics are all amazing. Too bad my size 10 feet are for normal boards.

If you have the cash to drop look into reduced footprint boots. The Salomon F series of boots are a full size smaller on the outside then normal boots. Base plate risers are also a good option. Your big enough that th reduced leverage won't be a problem in any way.

destroy Not sure what you have for boots as well, but...

I'm also a larger guy, albeit not as big as you, but I learned a few things quickly.

I'm 6'3" 215 or so, and wear a 13. I ride a GNU 11up 162w. A few weeks ago I bought a 14 mistakenly because it was the best boot for the best money I could find at the time. It was an OLD tech boot, but I replaced them with a brand new size 13 Burton Ambush last week. I never got toe drag or anything, but the newer boots are a ridiculous amount smaller and more comfortable and functional in every way. Newer boots will have the shrinkage tech that makes them smaller on the outside and the same on the inside. That should help you as well!

BarrettDSP I ride a Burton Custom Wide 167 that is a few years old(i normally do 2 trips a year). I'm 6'1 200lbs with a size 14 shoe. I'm able to adjust my bindings so that the heel is slightly deeper on it giving me an extra inch from having toe drag plus I use 15/-15 stance that helps as well.

extra0 you can probably get away with something smaller than a 164, but guys like you are the reason they invented "wide" boards.
