My Uli wouldn't cut it with your combined weight. Have you been on conventional SUP boards that have been too small for you? You have minimal glide and just slog along with lots of paddling? I would think you would need a pretty long and/or wide board to provide the displacement and wetted area your combined weight requires. I would definitely try to demo your inflatable before you buy it if you can. I would get in touch with Uli, http://www.uliboards.com/standup.php and describe what you have in mind including detailed info about your expected water conditions and activities. Do you plan to stay in sheltered waters and/or on calm days, do any racing, wave riding, etc.? I would talk to some of the other manufacturers or distributers as well.
