    You don't want a shortboard that big. 6'10" shortboard? wtf. Get a funboard if you want that big.

    I have a board I'm trying to sell, 6'6" thruster. But I don't want to go through the pain of shippign it.

    how tall and how heavy are you? in all honesty, you should get a shortboard your size and tough it out. it will be frustrating for the first couple of months but after you get it down you will be stoked you did it that way. just for a point of reference, i am 5'5 135 pounds and my shortboards (depending on where im surfing, excluding guns and mini guns) are between 5'8 and 6'1 long, between 17 7/8 and 18 3/16 wide, and between 2 and 2 3/16 thick. dont get a huge shortboard, you will just look like a kook (a harsh reality).

    I have a 6'1" 19 2.5 round nose fish shape that will be plenty big for you. I'm 6' 190 and it floats me just fine.

    250 and it's yours. Only been used a couple of times.

    I'm guessing you're talking about a swallow tail which is what mine is.

    the link doesn't show a board just the index page. I'm in FL. I travel around a lot, but I am usually in the Venice, Orlando, New Smyrna areas.
