Bought this baby on Whiskey for 399.99. Im 6'3 200 lbs...the biggest option was the 5'11!
Took her out the other day in about shoulder to chest high waves with some wind chop.
This board is 2.75" thick at its fattest which floated me well. Kept me up out of the water fairly well. Easy to get into waves...handles real well up and down the wave very snappy.
Only qualm is when it shipped the box was beat half to dealth...only one crack in the side rail about a foot up from the tale. Easily sanded down and filled. I've read mixed things about shipping boards from whiskey and dog funk!
Anywho board floats, paddles and rides well even for my size!
