I'm 6'1" and 185-190. I ride a cassette concave 43". Really good size for me. I can ride a 41" fine if its wide.
You might want to start off by getting a cheaper flat deck, about 44".

yeah any board 43 to 45 would fit you fine. no one here has recommended cassette, an all wakeskate brand who knows what they're doing. for starting out you would probably want to go with their flat deck or linear perspective. though if you want to chip in more money concave decks go a long way.

would you have any suggestions from personal experience. No real price range as of now. Do you have a suggestion as to grip or foam. Which works better. Thanks

no i dont as far as comparison. but i hav foam on a cassette and i dont have any complaints about it. it's not slippery and doesnt tear up your leg when you fall on it. though like i said, i have never riden griptape so i can't compare them.

i definitely prefer griptape. ive ridden a cassette concave, butter 42, and catalyst, and i like the feel of the grip tape on the cassette much more than the foam on either of the other two. sure you might get some battle scars from the tape, but i feel much more connected to the board than the foam. also, i find it easier to adjust my feet on the grip than the foam since the foam is spongy.

I learned on the Lucky for about $99. I ride the Catalyst 112 now.
