    I think you have a good point, here. At 3" thick & 22" wide, it's a lot of foam, but still not as much as a longboard. A 225 lbs guy stepping down from a longboard seems like one hell of a niche market to mass produce a board for, but what do I know?

    I'm beginning to believe the Fishcuit's ability to do well on the advertised "head & a half" waves is based purely on how good today's average surfer (like scotty ) is these days & not the original intent of the design.

    Other than the Pavel, I see the Fishcuit as one of the most retro style hulls. Of course the fin config is contemporary, as well as the amount of "v" & outline, but not like like most of the contemporary fish I've seen.

    I just started the thread because 100% of the threads I read...including this one...has at least one guy hovering around 200 lbs saying he went smaller than a 6'0". I found that odd & was wondering if someone actually had a 6'4". Seems like a weird size in this board to make & market, since nobody surfs over 6'0".

    Charlie..the guy was asking who a 6'4" fishcuit is made for...maybe read next time before you rant. Sorry to offend but i really think a 6'4" (over three inches thick) fishcuit is made for someone who is either super large, or who is of limited ability.
