Thin but over 6"7.

I reckon he could be 2 metres same height as me or could be up to 201 cm

Very tall looking dude. If not 6’7, a legit 2 meter guy.

A perfect 200 cm!

@Rob: time to open a "cricketer" category and add the likes of Mohammad Irfan (he is more of a 6'10" guy rather than the claimed 7'1")

@ Rob - What about a height chart?
said on 26/Jun/19
Tried to compare your Hafthor image side by side with this one above: Click Here
Hafthor (listed 6'7.75" here) is indeed slightly taller. Curtly, therefore, is in the 6'7" range.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
Maybe just a tap bit of weak 6'7 but not as low as 6'6-6'6.5". 6'6.75" at the low side.

Kane still looked a lot taller than this (especially with his footwear advantage), in person.
Canson said on 23/Jun/19
He’s a good 199-200 cm guy after seeing the pic with Rob along with Ambrose and other contemporaries. Probably a weak 6’7”, 6’6 range guy very much on the cusp of 6’7.

Curtly was always slightly shorter than legit 6'8 Joel Garner and taller than 6'5/6'6 range Ian Bishop and Courtney Walsh. I'd say legit 6'7 for Curtly. When he toured England in 1988 some commentators described him as 6'8 and one, Ray Illingworth, described him as 6'9. Illingworth had a habit of over-estimating and once described Derek Pringle as 6'9...when he was more of a decent 6'5.

I guess it is possible he could be somewhere between 6'6 3/4" and 6'7". Since the chart says he is 6'6 1/2". Notice how his neck is leaning forward and not exactly straight meaning he is standing relaxed. I lose about 1/4 inch doing that. Then again, i have no idea if Rob is really standing at his tallest or what the footwear they are wearing that day. Hey Rob, who had the footwear advantage that day?
for a guy over 6ft 6 he stood very well in that photo op.
Andrea said on 21/Jun/19
Well, yeah, 184guy2, 6'6 is definitely undercutting him a bit!
All things considered, the difference looks very close to 10.5 inches here, so somewhere between 6'6.5 and 6'7 certainly isn't that hard to believe, especially since Rob himself is over 5'8 flat.
Andrea said on 21/Jun/19
Jordan87, I have no problem believing he's somewhere between 6'6.5 and 6'7. Nothing more than that though.
184guy2 said on 20/Jun/19
Closer to 6'6 is ridiculous ...
Rob is clearly an inch below his chin ; this guy looks that he could have 1 inch on someone like Anthony Joshua .6'6.75 might be on the money ....
Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on 20/Jun/19
The man's 55 years old. I'll give him the full 6'8" in his 20's/30's. He's probably still over 6'7" today and wakes up at close to 6'8", the same way that Rob wakes up at close to 5'9".
said on 20/Jun/19
I think a fraction under 6'7 is definitely possible. Rob I'm assuming you don't think he's lost noticeable height? Since there's no current and peak...
A 1/4 inch might be possible, but I doubt he's a guy who has lost much height.
Andrea said on 20/Jun/19
He does look over 6'6 for sure, tree, but not quite the full 6'7, HERE.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jun/19
⭐ I had a cat called Ambrose.
She was a girl!
Jordan87 said on 19/Jun/19
I would think he is closer to 6'7" still than 6'6".
said on 19/Jun/19
But rob looks down his head looks bigger,this guy is over 6ft6
Rob can u give a gues on his head size cuz looks a bit smal for a 2meter range man
In person I would have thought at most 9.5 inches for his head, which on a near 6ft 7 guy is on the smaller side.
mini golf kid said on 19/Jun/19
My god he is enormous.I would look like a shrimp next to him. West Indies Cricketers are huge.
Nik said on 19/Jun/19
@ cmillzz - I always respect your opinion but I dunno about what you have said on this occasion, I think in many people's 📚 6'7" is exceptionally tall, certainly in my 📖 it is! It certainly does depend on how you define it though and 6'4" could be deemed to be exceptionally tall, I would say that an exceptionally tall height is one that is at least 6'6"!
Mahesh said on 18/Jun/19
Rob a comparison picture with hafthor please
jriggs said on 18/Jun/19
At 55 I would say he is starting to drop height probably was a good 6'8.25 / 6'8.5 peak
Now he is more 6'7
said on 18/Jun/19
Nice! He does look a solid 6'6.5 on the height chart.
That would be the lowest I'd have thought he could be, highest 6ft 7. 6ft 8 in shoes.
Andrea said on 18/Jun/19
tree, for the reasons I have given (regarding his head size), I'd say he looks closer to 6'6 than 6'7 here...
cmillzz said on 18/Jun/19
not quite sure if 6’7 would be considered that yet. I think 6’9 might be the start of exceptionally tall. Really depends on how you define it though.
Nik said on 17/Jun/19
This is what exceptionally tall and average look like!
said on 17/Jun/19
Rob, is 6’7 1/8” arguable? His shoulders look way too high to be 6’6.5” range.
I think he is close to 6ft 7, but I wouldn't have guessed over that range.
Jordan87 said on 17/Jun/19
6'8 is a no. 6'7", yes but not taller than that.
Myself said on 17/Jun/19
I think his head is smaller than Rob's!
tree said on 17/Jun/19
Andrea said on 16/Jun/19
He looks more 6'6-6'7 than a full 6'7 here.
Really?Looks a good example of legit 6ft7,Definitely over 6ft6
said on 17/Jun/19
Maybe add a height chart?
Unless the camera is somehow altering your head sizes, he doesn't have a big head (and eyelevel, in particular) for his height, so he can seem taller than he is, but taking that into account, I'm not sure he looks much more than 10 inches taller than you here...
It's a good camera position for representing true head sizes - sometimes with a lower camera it could knock a fraction of height from a taller person, but in this case the camera is nearly 5ft 8 high. I will try to do a quick video and link to a chart soon.
Big T said on 17/Jun/19
Despite the 6’8” claim, the vast majority of listings for him are actually 6’7”, so he seems to have been accurately listed
cmillzz said on 17/Jun/19
yeah, my first impression when seeing this pic was that he’s a legit 6’7.
Y07 said on 17/Jun/19
He could be 6'8" first thing out of bed. Since he looks to have a 8-head proportion. He could definitely create a illusion of looking taller than he actually is.
Y07 said on 17/Jun/19
He is definitely tall for sure. Could be 6'8" first thing out of bed. Since he looks to have a 8-head proportion. He could definitely create a illusion of looking taller than he actually is.
Thyssen said on 17/Jun/19
No more than 200cm
Mickie said on 16/Jun/19
Yeah - he looks this.

Dream said on 16/Jun/19
Rob, this is how Kane looked in person! (Without the bigger shoes!)
Caruso Victor said on 16/Jun/19
Curtly always looked around 6’8 to me
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jun/19
The standing position deceiving Curtly look to be 6'6 1/2.
said on 16/Jun/19
He looks more 6'6-6'7 than a full 6'7 here...
The photographer lady was only 5ft 1 or thereabouts but actually had the foresight to stand on a chair to become over 6ft to take photos here. I don't think curtly is as tall as he claimed in his biography.
tree said on 16/Jun/19
So he would have a full head on a 176 guy?
His head is 25cm?
Badboy said on 16/Jun/19
Considering the guy's age and posture , I think rob he was 6'8 in the early 1990's , current height is 6'7
Tunman said on 16/Jun/19
Somewhere like 27-28cm difference here?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/19
I know what a 12 inch difference looks like and it's more than this, so I agree with 6ft7!
World Citizen said on 16/Jun/19
Wow, he's tall!
Kapp said on 16/Jun/19
He looks much taller, probably because of how lanky he is.
