    6'4" Fishcuit question

    Every post I read & shop I talk to says that "There's a lot of foam." or they're "too floaty" if you go the 6" shorter than your performance board as CI advises. Guys that weigh close to 200 lbs say they with they stayed under 6 feet?!?!

    Who is the 6'4" Fishcuit made for???

    That's what I'm talking about...190 lbs and riding a 5'8". Can you use it in 2' mush?

    So scotty you say that the fishcuit is for guys that cant surf or paddle. Is that why every team surfer on the C.I. surfteam rides them. And i ride one myself. I think your the one who cant surf. so GO HOME

    Yeah i can but i would like to point out that i swam in college so i can catch little mushbergers on this. Guess it depends on your paddling ability.

    i think he was actually saying that the 6'4" fishcuit is for guys who can't surf or paddle, not the design in general.
    so relax, DUDE.

    that said, i had a 5'8" biscuit last summer that i found to be a tad small for me (i'm 6'0"...at the time, pushing 200lbs). i now have a 5'10" rusty dwart that i love...it's almost too much foam.
    it really depends on your ability (both surfing & paddling)

    its for the bigger guy. 6'2" and 225, that type of guy needs a bigger board. And if you are stepping down from a longboard that def helps alot. As rob says 'foam is your friend'!
