Big Boy Freestyle!

I gave this a lot of thought since I'm big myself and I'm really drawn to freestyle riding. I figure if a 150 pound guy on a 400 pound ski can do a huge backflip then a 250 pound guy on a 300 pound ski should be able to pull off the same trick with the same power ski. Make sense? I bought a kawasaki X2 which is supposed to be one of the lightest skis that can also hold a big engine. It came with a 650 and I've seen the new X2's with the 800 in them doing back flips stock. So I'm ripping out the 650 and going with either the 900 or 1100, most likely the 1100 just to be safe. So with this setup I feel like I should have no problem pulling off any trick that these lighter guys are doing on their 750s and 800s but this is just a theory for now but get back to me in the spring and ill let you know for sure.
