Share that link! Tried to look it up and had no luck.
My step up is a beautiful 6'9 shaped by Redman under the Hatteras Glass label. It's a custom I ordered about 8 years ago when I was living in Avon. Dimensions have faded but he had me go a few inches longer and a quarter inch narrower than my hpsb at the time. Also a quarter inch thicker where it would help with paddling. When u need a step up there's typically a good deal more water moving around. The bottom is relatively flat with a little vee for cutting thru the chop. He was a talented shaper and is missed. I've ordered customs from other shapers and nothing has come close for me.
Once you have the right equipment, know your limits and you'll be fine.
