    What size would you recommend for a 6'3 220 lb. I have been looking to get a fish for a long time but haven't been able to come to any conclusion on sizes and dimensions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    6'3"x22"(or less)x raised-deck design 3 1/16"(rails 2 7/8") or less.

    call Scott at natural art in hatteras and tell him mike(me) told you.

    let him decide width,just keep the rails under 3",but get it big for winter.
    let him decide fins,but get glass-ons.
    get the full resin tint polished gloss while your at it.

    my opinion...depends on how much you surf, athleticism, etc. You could get away with the 6'3" with ease. Talk with a shaper and give them an idea what you want...here is a few that i have had over the years from Brian Wynn...
    5'10"

    6'10" (basically my LB)

    My Chris christenson c hawk arrived yesterday. If youre looking for a twin fin for good waves i would recommend it. It looks sick.

    Not a fish, but a twinnie, nonetheless. I'm working on the Twinzer fins now.

    Thanks. It's 6'0" x 23" x 3". About 4" of kick in the nose and just under 1 1/4" of tail rocker at the rail, although the massive concave coming out the back bumps it up to almost 2" along the stringer.

    I originally got it to use for groveling here in VA, but after taking it out on several thigh-high days, I questioned it's ability in those conditions. To be fair, however, we were having heavy offshore winds and I asked for a board for somebody weighing in at 210 lbs. When I was in a soaked wetsuit I was over 230 lbs (I'm also not the best paddler).

    Believe it or not, the board in the pic did amazing in overhead waves. I'm sure that somebody weighing 210 lbs or less and in decent shape could easily use it as a groveler. I'm looking for the ultimate VA small wave shortboard for fatties, though. Austin's shaping another one for me with straighter rails (i.e. carrying the width to the nose and tail), less belly, no concave and zero rocker for a fat bastard grovel board.
