lf makes a 44" Faction. its 100 bucks. also the new 2008 LF flat decks are super wide so your toes arent going to hang over. hyperlite makes longer boards but they are super narrow. <BR> <BR>you will eventually move down to a 42" skate when you step it up to a concave skate. I have a buddy your size (he has size 14 feet aswell) who rode the reed 42 impulse last year and is now on the 42 sst and loves it. <BR> <BR>so basically what im saying is you can get a 44" flat deck or 42". the 44" is just going to be more forgiving your first year riding. that big of a board is just harder to manuever for shuvs and to put on edge.

I was on a 45" flat deck last season when I weighed 215-220 and now I'm in the 190-195 range and am on a 43" Mogley and absolutely love it

get the 42" Sattelyte Harlos. That should work fine. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.strictlyskates.com" target="_blank">http://www.strictlyskates.com</a>
