Default Need Sizing Help

I'm trying to figure out what board size I need. I am about 6 feet tall, and I am pretty overweight at about 300 lbs. Let me know your recommendations.

At your wieght stiffness become the biggest issue. You can get away with a shorter board that's stiffer. Like 160cm. Board like lib tech t-rice pro, ride machete gt, Salomon mans board, capita Fk'n awesome, will be good even if you are new because of their shape and your wieght can flex the stiffer board no problem. If you want a normal sized board for you wieght for like freeriding you are looking at 170cm +.
