Board length suggestions for a 6'6 dude

Postby greatoak » Mon Sep 22, 2008 11:11 pm

Hey, I'm 6'6, 240lbs. Does anybody have any suggestions for the ideal length of a kite surfboard for me? I've been told that a Surftech Stingray 6'0 is a great board but I'm not sure if it would be long enough for me. Do I want something that is at least 6'6? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
