Any of you guys over 6 feet tall riding the short fat? 

I really want to try one of the volumes shifted boards but I’m concerned about the length at 147. 

In my mind I can see the board squirting out when landing anything. I have always ridden wide boards, the wider the better. The specs for this year looks great but the length is messing with my mind.

Looking at picking up this years since next year they are making it a little bit narrower. 

Which one? Im 5'11 and was 230ish when I had the Cool Bean 144 and on groomers it was great but my Slush Slasher 143 was too small so sold it and bought a 147. Thinking about picking up a 151 also.

180cm (5'11") I 102kg (222lbs) I 265MP (8,5US)
Go wide!

@mr MC has too narrow of a tail for what I’m looking for in a short fat board. I’ve got size 13 feet so I really like the 33.7 nose and 32 tail on the Jamie Lynn short fat.

@cole Good to hear about 6 foot guy liking the board. Pulling the trigger. I didn’t need much of a push

curious to know how you like it.  I'm 6'2 and the smallest board that ever felt Ok enough was the CAxx.  Everything else small/shortfat/whatever felt exactly like you mentioned--not enough tail, squirted out on everything and just felt like riding a lunch tray

In reality the nose on the Jamie Lynn Short Fat measures 32.7 not the advertised 33.7.
