Best Big Guy Surf Board

I am 6"3 225lbs and have an 04' X30. Looking for suggestions for a good stable surf board that would make it a little easier not having to hold the rope.

Agreed. Red rocket is great for bigger guys. The phase five Kong is also a good board. Quite a bit lighter than the red rocket but it’s still very stable.

SoulCraft Slider+. Pure fun for any size rider. Same price as boards mentioned above and much better. I've had a Red Rocket. Sold it immediately after riding soulcraft.

Depends on what you're looking for. 225 isn't that heavy for a good board and decent wake. I have a Phase 5 Trident and love it. It's kind of a crossover skim board. Sold the Red Rocket years ago and bought a Blue Lake as my surf style board.

I'm riding behind a 07 X2 with a single 450 bag in the rear locker, 9.8 MPH and in at least 10' of water. I can ride with as little as 3 people in the boat with no issues at all.

I'm also in this market, but not for myself. I have friends who come to my lake house that are a lot bigger than me and have a hard time getting up on the boards I own. Looking for a good and cheap board since it will not be for me. I looked at the Red Rocket, but its some serious coin, so that will be out of my market.

Liquid Force Broadcast is the way to go. My dealer (Action Water Sports Fenton) had these cheap for their holiday event.You may want to call around and see what you can get one for.

Can't give much of a recommendation on it yet, but I just picked up a new Doomswell El Jefe and bet it would fit the bill. It's currently the biggest board in their lineup (5' 6", 36L volume) and should support up to a 260lb rider. Planning to use it this summer with my 4 year old (~240lbs combined).

Red Rocket or Blue Lake. Both great boards. Light and easy to surf, plus stable tracking. Inland Surfers are a little brittle though.
