best boat?

I am 6'3" and about 180 lbs looking to buy a boat. I would like a play boat but since i just started nothing too technical. What would be a good boat, any brand, for me to buy that i could fit into?I thought i would get a wavesport big ez but i could not fit my legs in the boat and my weight does not really fit the wavesport super ez. I'm sure someone else out there must have the same problem as i so i could really use your help. I am now looking at a liquid logic space cadet but they seem a little too pricy for me plus i haven't sat in one to make sure i fit. I need a lot of help. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

Hey, what's up

Where are you paddling near Conyers? I live in Colorado but grew up in Gwinnett county. I have a Dagger G-Ride 6.5 and I know a tall guy that paddles one as well. It is a forgiving boat, but is small and has some ability to learn to play.

I've got a Dagger Kingpin 6.3 and I bet it would fit someone of your lengthy stature. Not the best boat IMO for a beginner, but you'll love it on a wave. I had a big EZ before that and I really liked that boat, too, just wanted something shorter that I'd still fit into. I'm six feet even.
