I'm in need of buying a couple of kayaks that are suitable for tall paddlers, 6' 4" height. Its for beginners so need something fairly stable thats really good to learn in...

Any suggestions???

I'm bringing a Jackson Super Hero down from the USA and looking to sell it. It's currently brand new - I'm going to paddle it two weeks on the West Coast until March 1. It's a great boat with a modern planning hull, yet lots of volume for stability. I'm 6'1" with size 11 feet and there's still plenty of room for a taller person. $550 US dollars. Lemme know.

There are loads of yaks for tall people... Nomad 8.5 mamba 8.5 axiom 9.0 mystic, large remix, large jefe, habitat, critical mass, burn, everest etc.... The list goes on... Most kayak models now have several sizes. I'm 6ft 5 and fit in the large size of most models.
