Probably Aim for the 42"-43" range.My dad is 6' 200 and he rides a 43" comfortably. Centemeter wise 104 - 108 range. That should be about perfect for your size.
As far as Skates go, I totally undestand were you are coming from about the Zariel, as sick as it is, it's not the greatest for newbies. But Gator makes really good stuff, LF's Armada isn't bad, and if there is brand loyalty with HL, i've heard good things about the Byrely and the Vinyl.
Don't mean to sound like a broken record, but demo as much as you can. That is a great way to figure out if you like something.
