yeah man, you are gonna want a stiffer, longer ski. I am the same height but about 25 lbs lighter and I still get squirrely at high speeds on 180s. Go with a fatter, stiff like the scratch BCs or V-Pros...but yeah, don't get any of the noodle park skis or you will be in trouble. I made the mistake of getting the skogens last year, and the tips flopped around like a fish in a boat. good luck :)
I'm not sure what you're going to use them for (exclusively jibbin?? a little B.C.?)
4-frnt makes a pretty beefy ski. My next suggestion would be the Head mad trix mojo. Again, a super solid ski...pretty stiff. Look in the 180-185 range. Stay away from the Atomics and Salomon skis due to their foam core. Seth Pistol, and Nordica Beast are others you might consider.
i just found riding gigantic skis took the fun out of pow. I used to ride a pair of 198cm Elan SCX RP's. I could lay a carve in fresh pow, but I'd hardly get face shots, I'd skim 2 feet of fresh up to my boot tops. I prefer gettin down and dirty in the pow. as long as you float knee deep, what more do you need?
'Dude, check out this nasty gouge.'
'Your mom has a nasty gouge.'
im just gonna sling crystal meth so i dont have to get a real job and can afford to ski, with the way my senior year is goin though thats probably one of my few options
