    Hi,

    I am considering bodyboard in but I may not even be able to get a board. I am 6'7" and 23st in weight. Yep, massive. Clearly a standard board is no good. I see RonJons in America do a 50" board. Anything similar available over here?

    Try the bigger riders section on bbhq website, I know the NMD base goes up to 45" you may need to contact ASD to order one though. In my experience and to be honest (I'm a 5'8" 10.5 stone weed) most stock boards are up to 44" long in the uk. If none of these are any use try a custom, let me know and I'll hook you up with a European custom board maker if that helps. If you are a beginner just go for the biggest stock board you can find as custom boards are not cheap. Hope this helps.

    Cheers. Nothing is cheap at my size. Ron Jon want $150 shipping on a $50 board. Non starter as I would pay more vat and import duty on the shipping than the board.

    I would also struggle with fins. Size 17 feet :)
