Got a 6'8", 300# friend who wants to try kayaking!

Being an open-boater, I'm not really the one to offer advice though my first thought was something along the lines of an Overflow X. any suggestions from the crowd?

Lonewolf, you reading this? SJ sent me.

I've got a boat that just might fit. I'm 6'5" and 285 w/ size 15 feet and the only boat I could find that really fit was a Pyranha G3. I got it last year and only floated it once - It's new - no scratches, etc. It's a river runner - not a play boat. Rolls great and with a semi-planing hull it surfs awesome!
Let me know if your friend would be interested.

big boat, big dude

the G3 aat 80 gallons would be a great model for a new boater that size to start. Pyranha I4 in large or even better the new Stretch l/xl model would be more on the playboat side of things at 7'4 and 67.4 gallons
good luck with the sport!!
