Whitey, based on your criteria, you should just buy The Street and be done with it. At your size, get the biggest one, 137x42.5. It's my board of choice for what you describe. Whatever you do, just make sure its a Shinn, you can't go wrong with any of them. :thumb:

You might want to check out the 135x42. I am a similar weight and it is my favourite board of all time by quite a margin. The 135 is also great in waves as well as being a good all round freestyler.
