Hello There , I am a 6 foot 7 man weighing in at about 14 stone , approximately 10 years ago i used to enjoy riding around on my Bmx at the local skatepark and dirtjumps , however back then i was considerably shorter ( and lighter! )

What Bike could anybody reccomend to be used primarily at Skateparks to perform aerial maneuvers , grinds , dirt jumps etc;

I have looked at Larger Bmxs and Cruiser Bmxs , but what size frame should i be looking at and what price should i be looking to spend for a good quality build that should last .

used honda accord|used honda civic

I'm not quite sure why this is in the reader's rides section as you don't have a bike, however I'll answer the question. I'd recommend a Kona Cowan, they're jump bikes made to be seriously resilient. Due to your height you'll obviously need a large I guess, but it might be an idea to try a few out, one of my mates is 6'4 and his jump bike has a tiny frame, he just feels that it handles better and is more confidant using it.
