Default Help with board size, please.

I, personally, am not in need of a board. But I am writing, and I have a character who is in need of a board. I'd just go to a calculator and be done with it, but there is a problem.
He's really, really, big.

A racing or just general board would be good, but I'm not sure how long, wide or anything.

He's 7'7", 270lbs, and his shoe size is 27 (if this affects width greatly, I'm not totally sure, since I don't have these issues). If anyone can give me a formula or something, or measurements, that would be awesome. I'm stumped.

You'll have to use 4 boards in this arrangement (2x2).

heres the hassle.

youd have to custom order boots, custom order bindings, and ride a board that will be reminiscent to a large sheet of plywood.

If I were you, Id call up a company like burton, k2, ride, rome. some who makes boards bindings and boots and talking to them about custom sized products for your friend. might be a little pricier but at least hell get to snowboard

Ride - Anything smaller than 175 would be like him on a kid-sized board. As to everything being done custom, that's not so much the problem as the correct size. I'm only writing the character, not trying to buy super-sized gear. However, if I can't get anything solid, I'll do just that; contact a company and see if they can give me something on it.

Illegally - So, double the width and double the length of an average sized-board, you mean?
