At 6'2" 200#, Im basically in the same boat (no pun intended). I just ordered an inland surfer Tako. It's less expensive due to being a compression-molded board, but it has tri-fin, dual fin, and single fin configuration options, so it can be ridden surf or skim style. Best of all, it's affordable. I'll never become a pro, so there's no reason for me to run out and spend $600+ on a board that was hand finished, dipped in gold, wrapped in carbon fiber, and kissed by a leprechaun. Coming from a wakeskate background, I'm going to be riding it skim-style (there's something shout a shoveit that I really like). I ordered it from boardco for $299 4 days ago, but the price just went back to $349. Mine arrives on Tuesday and ill be riding it Wednesday. If youre interested, I could make a quick vid of me riding it if you want to see it in action. I'm new to surfing though, so it won't be too impressive.
