Well, I'm looking at getting a new skate. Ethier the New popy or New bigfoot.
I'm 6'5 240 with size 12 feet. I don't know if the popy would be to small.
I'm sure alot of it is personal preferences. But what size skate do alot of you bigger guys ride?

I'm leaning more towards the bigfoot because of the width and then I wouldn't have to deal with dragging feet as much....

Any insite would be very helpful, thanks--

Ya, I have a catalyst right now and it doesnt work for my bigfeet.

Its needs to be 3-4inchs wider at the tips and it would be SICK!

Thats why I'm thinking about the new bigfoot. Its WIDE.

I got the bigfoot today.

It is awesome.

Pops really nice and smooth. I have a lot of control on it.
Fins are just right. Very responsive for a big board. Doesn't feel like a 12lb board at all.
