I'm 6'1" (165lbs) with size 11/11.5 feet, and I'm wondering if a voile SD 166 will work for me, or if I should maybe go longer... I've never used a longer board, so I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to maneuver as well as I'd like... any thoughts?

it might be helpful to know where/what type of terrain you plan on riding with it but I have size 10.5 feet and have no problems with the 173. The '73 and '66 have the same width waist.

for the type of riding i do in the cascades (wide open slopes with little or no trees) i wish i had 190cm board that was about as flexy as a surfboard. i weigh 135 too. my burton s-series 170 seems a little too "sketchy" underfoot sometimes... but thats just me :D
