Repartition wouldn't save you from skewed data unfortunately. The way Spark
works now is that it pulls data of the same key to one single partition,
and Spark, AFAIK, retains the mapping from key to data in memory.

You can use aggregateBykey() or combineByKey() or reduceByKey() to avoid
this problem because these functions can be evaluated using map-side
