If you were my friend I would stick you on a 162w or 166w with a hybrid camber.
We are close in size, I'm a bit shorter and lighter but not much, and I ride 162W all the time. No issues in any form of powder from ankle to nipple deep. I prefer to save whatever maneuverability I can by keeping the board as short as comfortable. The long boards get cumbersome in trees and bumps. Over 150 days last season and not a single issue.
I will stick with 162W to 166W in my opinion is the range you will have the most comfort on.....[/QUOTED
