Good play boat for a tall guy

I am looking for a play boat, but everyone I have demoed is to small. I am around 6'4" and have a size 14 foot. I weigh around 200 pounds. If someone has any suggestions let me know.

Dang, here's one:
Take up basketball!
This sport is for hobbits like me!

Seriously, I have some tall friends who paddle the biggest of the Kingpins and seem to do well.
I don't know if their feet are as big as yours...

You will probably fit in a Fluid Nemesis (i dunno sizes, but the largest) or possibly a Jasckon Monstar. You are welcome to try out my 08 jackson superstar, but i am only 6'2" and size 13 feet, but I have a tiny bit of extra space.

You would definitely fit in a Monstar, with room to spare. Really stoked on mine, might also look into the new Molan - they look good and have a large I think.

You should definitely try the Fluid Nemesis Large. The man in the Picture is 6'4" and has a size12 foot. The Nemesis was designed for tall and heavy people and has plenty of foot room.

A friend of mine (6'8", i think around size 14) is in the previous SuperStar (08 ) and has sat in a new MonStar in the shop. Both fit him. You shouldn't have trouble with it. You might not be able to fit booties in any of these boats.
I was going to be vague but then I decided to do this other thing.

Hi guys

I own a Fluid kayak and really enjoying it. Me and my family regularly visit the nearest river for a fun filled day on the water. We also take the kayak with us to the sea. It really gives us much more to do while we are there.

Hope this will help those choosing to buy a good kayak.

I am 6'3" 215-220lb size 12-13. I have a Jackson Superstar & have plenty of room..Just need the small happy feet for it. With your shoe size & height you might have to eliminate the Happy feet all together..Good Luck.
