it also depends what types of tricks you want to do. wakeskates dont really have size or weight specifications. most wakeskate companies only have three or four sizes. Basically if you want to do more technical one wake or no wake tricks go smaller but if you want to do tricks big and w2w go bigger. I know someone that is your size and rides a 107.

107 is a 42, i don't think 180 would be too big for 107

it was a little bit of a struggle for him getting up but its not like you need to be a pro to do it. I just wanted to show that size and weight restrictions arent that big a deal. look at any wakeboard pro they ride boards much bigger than the weight restriction reccomends. The size of the board has more to do with your style and what type of riding you want to do.
