    you could buy a kit from Greenlight Surf Supply and make your own board. That's what I plan on doing.

    Board dimensions

    No I'm not a big guy,short(5'7'') and I think we called it husky back in the day,plus I just rolled the big 40 too. Heck even when I was in my prime (1979-1990) I never wanted to ride dinky boards like my buddies used to,plus the oldtimers I surfed with with taught me that board size means nothing,that it's mostly in the mind. Yeah launching or tail sliding a 7'4" pulled dovetail single fin is tough( Like stunt driving a dump truck), but the fun learning to do it is what makes it all worth it! I always tell the younger cats that if you're not falling,you ain't learning anything new,its all about having fun anyway.
