6'2" fish

my plan to make a 6’6" fish has changed to making a 6’2" fish because of available blanks. what are some good dimentions for this particular board?

Walker makes a 6’8" Fish Blank.

What size person,and years/ability of surfing?

i am 5’11", 160 lbs and my longboarding experiance is a little over a year but my shortboard experince is practically zero.

make a 5’11 or 6’0.

im 6’2 190lbs, and when i was going to make my first board i was in your shoes…a year or so on a longboard, wanted a fish, so i made a 6’4…its HUGE.

it worked well for me for a few months, but now i cant even turn it and i dont know why…all i know it that a big fish is a big board!

It depends on what you want out of the board and the wave you’ll generally ride it in,also materials play a big part…

…I’m 138# @ 5’-9" I ve surfed for over 40 years starting w/ beater 40-50 pounders to boards as small as 4’-9"…and just about everything inbetween.

My fav lengths for my hybrid fish types are from 5’-7" to 6-2…in either poly or styro.

but to give you an idea of what I’m building for myself now is 6-4 ,20.5,16n, 16.5 tail…2-3/4 thick…styro…it will weigh in at 8.5 pounds when done.

like I said…what do you want it to do for you?
