I'm relatively new to snowboarding. I feel its time for my own board.
I'm 6'2 175 lbs and size 13 shoe. I've gathered that my snowboard
length should be 160+ I'm still undecided about how wide I should go.
I've heard conflicting advice. These our boards I'm currently thinking
of and any suggestions would be great.

I think the conflicting advice can be broken down like this... in
general you want to go with as narrow board as possible SO long as you
don't get boot overhang. Narrower boards are quicker edge to edge and
overall will feel a little crisper (it's harder to make a wide board
torsionally rigid). However... trying to go with a narrow board with
big feet is a bad idea. With size 13 feet, you pretty will need to go
as wide as possible... something in the 27cm range. I've heard good
things about the Ride Yukon. Other less well-known boards I would
recommend at the Neversummer Legacy (www.neversummer.com) and the Donek
Sasquatch (www.donek.com). If you do a search for wide boards on
groups.google.com you will see other posting people have made to fill
in the details for you.

Good luck
