please no hate for voicing my opinion, but i think 179 hellbents would be perfect for him, due to his height and weight. im 165 lbs and rode eps a bunch this year, and they are just too soft to do anything besides butters. yes, the type of skiing he described is that which these type of skis cater to, but hellbents will be a bit stiffer and more stable for 180 lbs, and just as playfull as ep's. i think with the ep, the first time you wash out off a "little cliff" that you say you like hitting, you will be wishing you had a stiffer ski. but because of the rocker, and your weight, they will still feel extremly soft and playful.
