BMX - New Guy looking for a bike

I'm interested in getting into BMX, I've ridden mountain bikes up till now, but my friend bought a Redline Slant and it looks like fun so I wanted to try it. Only problem is I'm 6 ft tall, and 22 years old, am I too old and tall to ride BMX? And if I'm not, what would be a good bike for me to start on, I've never ridden BMX before, but I could spend up to $800 Canadian for a bike.
either get a fit or a wethepeople.....thats my opinion though.. quite a good bike to start on for that kindof price

Those are good bikes, IF you live in Canada order from www.3ride.com. They have a sweet selection. If you go more expensive you get better parts so WTP and Fit are good.
Thanks for the link, now that I've browsed through the forums I see that alot of guys are over 6 ft and ride BMX so I guess I'm not too tall. Is there anything that I should be looking for in terms of proper fit?
