What am I looking for? Size, Construction?

What do you guys think of compression molded boards? I am in the market for a board and don't know squat about them. Done it a couple times but only a couple times over several years. I'm a big guy. 6'3" 240lbs. So a big board is a must. What should I be looking for?

A Blue lake isn't going to support 240lbs very well especially if the wake isn't gigantic with a ton of push. There are several custom options that can be built to handle 240lbs and make it enjoyable for you, one of them is Soulcraft. If you want an Inland the Red rocket would be your best bet.

I know Bryce at Day 1 Wake would be more than happy to make a board for you.

If you do compression the Broadcast boad is the industry standard for entry level, everyone can ride it kind of boards. Should be able to take a beating and come back for more.

I'm 6'5" and was pushing 300 lbs last year and surfed the red rocket with a relatively small wake. Fortunately I'm a little lighter going into this summer

I second the broadcast. Or even the cwb ride. That was my first surfboard.
