WTB Wakesurf for BIG guys

Needing a large used board for big guys, Im 65, 275lbs. Looking at hyperlite landlock, liquidforce noserider or rocket, IS red rocket/blue lake, pretty much anything 54 or longer and proven to get a big guy going ropeless with the right set up. PM please, and thank you in advance! Located in Nashville, TN area.

I have found the Phase 5 Trident to be among the best for large people.

Cross the hyperlite off your list as it has much less ’float’ than the other boards. I had one and then got a red rocket. The red rocket is huge by comparison but has a lot easier of a ride due to its size.

The only down side i’ve Found is like other high end boards it’s fragile. I have had countless edge chips whereas the hyperlite is a tank you could drop on cement and it would probably barely scratch.

Thanks for the heads up on the hyperlite. Good to know as I was leaning that direction as it was the longest I could find, and in my budget. Do you know if the liquid force rocket 54 has the same issue?? I was Looking at one at a local shop and while it appeared to have a lot more surface area than my current undersized 410 Board it appeared to be very thin which made me wonder about buoyancy on it too. I keep hearing red rocket but they are out of my budget for now unless I can find someone really wanting to get rid of one used which does not seem likely. Thanks again!

While the hyperlite and liquid force have similar surface area they aren’t the same construction as the high end boards. They are made like a wake board so they are super rigid, and tough, but don’t float as well. The high end boards are foam cores so even with similar size they will have better buoyancy.

Set a search on eBay once in a while red rockets will pop up for ~$550 or so.

Look at the Phase 5 Kong, I have had over 300 lbs on mine surfing. I might be willing to part with it for the right price. Not sure how to ship... Its a great board for big guys and you can whip it around.

I'm 6'5" 290 and have tried quite a few "Big Boy Boards" My favorite 3 have been the Phase 5 Trident, Inland Surfer Red Rocket, and Phase 5 Kong. In that order!. A lot does depend on the wave as well. The Red Rocket is the most buoyant and will allow you to ride any stock or "normal" wave but its a beast and quite heavy. The Kong is the same "surf" style board but much lighter. (Great for a little bigger wave but its not quite a buoyant or fast as the rocket. The trident is my favorite and its a Skim style board so easier for tricks and cuts. It is also quite buoyant to be a skim style board.
