hahahaha, basically I would go with the largest one that you find. shop around because I know there should be one reasonably big enough. If anything, just ride a little faster.

wakeskating doesnt rely on a reccomended size chart, I suggest you go down to a local shop and stand on a few see what feel most comfortable, if you can demo thats even better, but truth is size has more to do with your comfort and the type of tricks you want to do, oboviusly a bigger board will go W2W better, but a small board will be easierto do technical tricks on, also a compression molded skate will be more bouyant than a wood skate so that will make a difference too. . . . btw I ride a 39 inch skate and Im 6'1" 225

I ride a Grubb 116 and I'm hardly a fatty at 165. I prefer it to the smaller ones as I like the extra surface area.

With the skates you are pretty open as to what size you want to ride. Most of them are also between 40-42 inches, or 105-116 centimeters. I'm 5'10, 175 and I love my Byerly 107. It gets decent pop, easy to throw around for shuvs, and can cut well for easy and big w2w jumps!
