i would not trust that calculator.
you could actually go 160, regardless of weight.
All my boards I am pretty much at the end of the spectrum or way over and it rides fine. I'm 210-215 lbs and ride these boards
k2 WWW 154 max rate at 200lbs
gnu kass 155 max rate at 210+
gnu billy goat 159 at 230 (only one i'm within range)
burton fish 156 max rate i think 170
You don't have to go big b/c of weight at all, the effective edge is pretty long on that too.
I would look into something with edge tech like magne traction for the ice.

|redlude97||164 seems awfully long at your weight even with your large feet for an everyday board. Would have opted for a 160, but you'll probably be ok|

2014 K2 raygun
Just ordered a 2014 kw raygun in 164 W.
Im 6'3 190 lbs with size 14 boots.
My old board is a nitro destroyer seth neary signature @ 159. Im super excited because i used to wipe hard due to excessive toe/heel drag on icy conditions and im hoping the long wider board will fix that.
Im hoping this board lives up to the hype, i like to ride fast, and hit trail jumps if i see them.
Anyone care to chime in on the selection?
Btw i got this board for a really good deal as well, thats why i couldn't pass it up. Plus we still have lots of snow!
