I think that I am the only person that is 6 foot 9 and wakeboards. I am not that good. I was just wondering if there are any tall wakeboarders or if I am the only one.

I'm 6'5.

Man, you should ride a bigger board. High center of gravity and probably a little top heavy, so longer helps with landings. I felt a big difference going from a 140 to a 144, and I'm about to try and get on a 147 and see how that feels...

A bud of mine, Ryan B, I believe is about 18 or 19, and I think he is 6'7". Smokin rider. Looks like he is 20 feet in the air with the pop he gets.

I am 6'7 and have been riding the Harris 143 for a year it. I feel more stable on a bigger board.

Derick, if you ever learn raley's they are going to be HUGE!!! You are already starting at about 7 feet off the water! Do you ride with a wider handle? If not the standard 15" wakeboard handle must feel small.
