I have not received the board yet, however when I went to order it the shipping was going to be $200. I called Dog Funk and talked to a representative and they worked with me to get shipping down to $30. They were very friendly and VERY helpful. I will write a review of the board when it arrives, but for now, I would buy from them again just based on their customer service!
I am 5'7" tall and 220 pounds. No, not pot bellied, but barrel chested with short legs. I surf in Maine, where waves are mostly 1-3' and more often than not, sloppy and choppy. I surfed a ton as a teenager, then took 30 years off. I have been surfing a Bic epoxy to get back in, but deciding between the biscuit (need size recommendations) or the 8' 7S Fish II Epoxy. Any thoughts? Better ideas?

Judging by your stats, you would probably need to get a 6'2 or 6'4 Biscuit epoxy. Go here to get an idea of what kind of size and volume you need http://cisurfboards.com/suggested_boards.php

I live in the Northeast USA and got a 6'7" Biscuit about a month ago. LOVE IT!!! It's super fast down the line, turns very well off the tail, and glides into waves with barely a paddle. I've used this in everything from 1' mush to 6' barreling beach breaks and it's become my one-board quiver.
Customer Service from Dogfunk is A+, the board got to my house in 2 days and the reps are super friendly and helpful.
I'm 14 and this has been my first summer surfing. I went from 8'0 walden to 7'2 southpoint and I am planning to go as far as my 3:2 boot/glove/hood will take me. I am begginer/intermediate, I go out in whatever the waves are like short of head+ depending on the condition. On the soutpoint I can pump and go up and down on the wave pretty well. My board is shaped like a shorty but is a longer model. I expect to go through mid December with my setup and I'm not getting into 6mm or anything. I ant to just finish off my season with the southpoint. However, for next year I want to go shorter, so would the biscuit be good for me at 5'5.5" and 120lbs. I was looking at boards like that, like the firewire "sweetpotato" and the lost "blunt". If anyone can give an estimate on board size, that would be great, as well as which of that short and fat type of board is best. Thanks

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!
I'm a 5'3" female beginner level. I've surfed about 10 times, and am able to pick up baby waves. I'm looking for something easier to duck dive with since im not strong enough to really push a longboard twice my size. What size biscuit should I get?

The board has a ton of volume. It depends on how often you plan on or get to surf and where you surf. If your surfing a few times a week you can go small like the 5'3". I would not get anything over a 5'7" unless you want it to feel more like a funboard but really the 5'7" would already feel like one. I'm 6' 175lbs and got a 5'11" and it's almost to big. The 5'11" would feel like a long board and be pretty difficult to duck dive for someone your size. Channel Islands says to ride it 8" shorter than your normal shortboard so take that into consideration. For the summer here in Santa Cruz Ca it's easily the funnest board I have ever ridden.

I surfed for the first time when back in Australia (my home country) last year around Christmas. I got up in my first session, riding a 7 6' NSP funboard. I sucked of course, but would love to become better. I'm very athletic (5 10' 205) and am wondering if this board would be ok for me. It looks great, and preferable to most longboards. Could anyone give me advice?

I appreciate the advice.

It will be a pretty good board for you. It has tons of foam and it is quite stable. It will be a bit more difficult to ride than the 7'6" you were riding but it is definitely workable if you don't want to go the longboarding route.
