^^ yep that's what I was thinking!
Also yeah board size is pretty much an individual preference, I rode the 169 skunk ape and found myself wanting to down size a little and ended up with the berzerker 165W. I'm a lot taller than you and an 265. No issues with stability either

Wow. 160 seems pretty short for my size...
I do want to be able to turn a little easier and I would like to ride switch better. I guess the shorter length would be nice for spins but I was thinking more along the lines of 164-165.

|AssassinMonLV||You should take a look at Never Summer Heritage 160cm. It sounds perfect for what you're looking for. It'll handle the powder days, it'll will take those bomb runs easily, and will do really well on Big Kickers. I would also recommend looking at the Ride DH as well.|

|Clayton Bigsby||I would look at something shorter then a 169, I'm 6'1+ 220 and ride a 162 and 160|

If you really want Mervin boards there are a heap to choose from that i would choose over the skunk ape (i've owned one). The T Rice is fun, as is the TRS and Gnu Riders Choice.
Personally after riding those boards i have switched to the Ride Berzerker and love it, really stable, great pop, awesome edge hold and pretty damn fast. It is a little narrower than the skunk ape and really rides completely different.
I like the camber profile of the berzerker more than C2 and BTX it just feels a lot more stable and easier to pop off natural features, easier to land confidently too in my opinion.
Anyway thats my input, you should really do a fair bit of searching on this forum as this question has been asked a fair bit.
