65cm boards for 265 lbs? Kidding? This will work only on a steeper angles. If he find a a flatter area, what then?

Seriously think 180 or close to. There are boards out there built for big guys, you wont get anyone on here recommending them though cause most of them are half your size and weight.
You wouldnt wear the shoe of someone with a foot half your size, you shouldnt be riding their board either.
You will be able to throw a 180 around like most people throw a 155 so dont stress it.
Go look at the prior website. Fissile-spearhead.
I second that.

I got a 180cm Incline for this season. That more that i need with my 220-230ls, but longer boards are fun, and super edge-hold is what i need.

usually radius starts at smaller numbers and goes bigger on a tail...

Check out donek.
Shaun build mostly alpine boards, but have some freeride models. They're as good as Prior, and you can get any length, width and flex. The board is cutom build for your weight, and they cost a bit less then Prior.
