Going huge w/ arbor a frame?

I'm a Midwest rider, which means I basically jib and work jumps with my pickle that is a 156. Now I'm moving out to breck and twas thinking about getting a surfboard to rip down mountains at unsafe speeds. I'm 170 6'1 and I know I should be getting a smaller board but won't I be able to bomb down runs and look death in the eye even more with a 170?

170 is just too big I think. I think something more along the lines of a Slayblade, BlackDeath, or an NS Titan. Maybe like a 160-164. That will be plenty stable for you.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I weigh 215lbs and am 6'5, my 168cm Flag is MORE than enough to bomb down the mountain with. I think a 164(ish) should be plenty for you.
