dimensioning suggestions

i am going to shape and glass my first board this week and i am a bit confused about what dimensions i should use. I want to build a 6’10 fish and i am 5’11 195 lbs.

Thanks in advance for the help



Have you gone throught the archives? Type “fish” on the search box and you will find tons of stuff on fishes. Look at the photo archives, too. Lots of great fishes by Spitzer and others. I have a 6’10" fish. The dimensions are 15.5x21x15.5. Wide point dead center. Thickness is 2 7/8. 7x5 keel fins. I think I used a 7’4"R blank. Mike
