Holy crap, there are a lot of tall paddlers out there! I am about 6'7" and I weigh somewhere between 200 and 230 lbs. I have a 36" inseam and size 14 feet.

I paddle the Fluid Nemesis Large size, and it fits me great. It's a legit playboat, not a river runner, but I run plenty of gnar stuff in it. Since it fits me well, it handles fine in difficult water. I can't wait to try out the Monstar.

For the guy who started this thread, I think that all the suggestions so far sound great (except the Rockit. Don't buy a Rockit.) You might also want to look into the Fluid Flirt. I paddled that for a number of years, with footroom and volume to spare. It's no longer a cutting edge design, but it was a rock solid boat. I really liked the way it handled. Good luck on your search.
