Default board choices

hey guys wuts up, i've riding about 2 years, and decided to get my own gear, im about 6'0 and a 250lbs, size 13, im currently looking at the couple boards, the nitro stencil cap wide at 159 and 164, as well as the k2 illusion wide at 163 i think it was, i am also going to be getting the ride lx bindings. since ill be more freeriding and a lil bit of park, should go w/ a 164 or do you think i can go w/ a 159 for more control? and also have you guys heard anything about sims? thanks!

Hi,

I am surprised that you are considering such short boards. I am 6'5", size 12 and 210#. I have always enjoyed riding freeride using boads longer than 173cm. I am currently riding a Burton Omen 179. It is real fast, but still a hoot in the trees and on the steeps.

It is about 5 years old so I am looking for a replacement. Boards of this length are hard to find.

Has anybody bought a long freeride or tapered board lately suitable for someone of my dimensions? Any advice about whats on the market these days will be appreciated.
