i Would go with one of the new burton CUSTOM WIDE boards with or without the ICS.. i own an X8 with ICS and it is the best board ive ever owned and its like my 5th one.. I testrode the NEW BURTON CUSTOM this summer at HCSC and its a great pick for all around freestyle but isnt too shy in the park either, if your a hardcore rail rat..

Check Out the Ride Yukon. It's Made for a big dude with large feet who just wants to free ride the mountain.

Best Wideboard out there?

I am 6'2" 230 size 14 so I am right there with you man. I actually have a Ride Decade 162W. It is a really fun board to ride. It doesn't have as much pop as I would like, but it grips the ice like no other. The slime-core side walls are awesome. I would def recommend this board.

the vapor is really soft, and not a wide board at all, but the t6 or t7 are a great choice. I'm surprised that no-one has said anything about the arbor roundhouse.... DAMN GOOD BOARD all around wide, good for your weight, looks good, and can handle anything you throw at it from 4 feet of freshies in the glades... good luck

Arbor Roundhouse is the one. It's their wide board, kills it all mountain, and is beautiful.

When asking about wide boards the first I was recomended to by a friend was an Arbor Roundhouse or Bataleon Jam/Goliath.

I have heard some really great things about Arbor's wide boards. I have never ridden one though, but am considering looking into getting one next season. The wood finish is sick too!

i ride a nitro magnum and i love it. it's an all mountain board and is a little wider than most wide boards. nitro makes some nice stuff but they don't get suggested much on this forum.

I also have big man syndrome being 6 ' 5 myelf. go with the never symmer revolver-r in a 164. i have one, it went from my park board to my everything board. I even hate teaching without it. plus there s a 3 year warranty on never summer, this is coming from some1 who breaks equipment, over 35 days, and it feels like the first day i rode it. toe drag is not even a thought anymore. check it out. or a legacy or titan. never summer got the wide thing right without sacrificing edge to edge transition.

Hi
I'm not quite as big as you but. I have found the same problem with board selection. I currently ride a NS Legacy-R and love it!! It would be perfect for you and all mountain riding.
