im having trouble finding the the right size board for me im 6'3 tall and weigh 85kg and an intermediate rider, any thoughts/ ideas on what size i should get?
having similar stats . 6'6 , minimum 2/12 thick , atleast 18 1/2 wide . ( but it depends on paddle fitness , and waves being ridden ).
make sure the highest volmue point is where you carry most weight/mass . ie if your biggest in shoulders then you want alot of foam forward of centre , and if not then slightly forward of centre . most good shapes should taper off or roll down the deck to maintain reasonable performance. at that size you'll want to make sure the chine's on your board are smooth and transition well .
6'6 webber afterburner, good paddle power and still with a performance outline and lots avail secondhand that are cheap .
