    Beef,
    I can make you a custom for your size that rides like a short board no problem, if you friend me on facebook you'll see the board I made for the guy who is almost 300 lbs, just scroll down on my wall page and you'll see the front, back and rocker shot. Mahady Surfboards is the Facebook name.

    Tom...i dont have facebook...but i def. will get up with you...send me a pm and we will talk.

    How short would you reccomend me going? For something where I could comfortably ride on a thigh high day as well as chest-head etc..

    Mike Hague shaped me a 9-4 that i was able to ride like that, and it is a good board....

    5'11" 218lbs

    Daily Driver 6'5" x 21" x 2.5 vol 1.3 cu feet
    small wave board 5'11" x 22 x 2.75" vol 1.52 cu feet

    Both of these are Coils, and both are customs. I came real close to going with the Neilson Floaty Fish mentioned earlier in this thread instead of the first board above.

    I'm not huge, but at my size and proportions I can't find much in the shortboard catagory off the rack that fits me well.

    I was also having problems with the durability of standard off the rack polys. Mainly delamination under my rear foot.

    I'm 6'3 225 and ride a 6'x3''x23'' quad mini simmons and it floats me amazingly. I haven't tested it out with the winter wet suit, but so far so good with the 3/2. It's a bit weird to sit on because it's so floaty yet so small and it also takes some time to find your sweet spot for paddling.

    Hey superfish have you taken that thing out in any size? Surf it during katia?

    All true! I'm 6'3 205ish and 51. it does depend on your fitness at the time, your style of riding and what kind of boards you're used to. Thinkness is the key. I mostly ride my 7'7 WRV fish hybrid. 3in think. It surfs in almost any condition, duck dives great and perfect for my size and style. Also use a 21 yr old 7'10 Perfection thats been reglassed by Steve Muhick so its really heavy but still steam roles down the line. My LB is a 9 ft WRV. wide, 3 inch in the middle. sometimes use my shortboard if I'm lighter at the time.
