Good, I'm not the only one that thinks that way.

To get back on topic, I'd recommend you find a used Red Woody or a Red Rocket (RR specs from 100 to 300 pound riders). I love my Red Woody and I don't let anyone else touch it, no matter how much they beg. No other stick fills the void like a Red Woody. They are epoxy, so you must use great care when handling your Red Woody or risk hurting it.




What!

Here is a pic of me pumping my Red Woody desperately in an attempt to get back into the pocket:

I love Inland Surfer's red boards - they are great for big guys and/or smaller wakes. They are a bit more difficult to get positioned on for lighter riders since they are big and like someone else said, they are easily damaged. I do like our Broadcast, but if we don't have a few people in the boat, I do have a hard time dropping the rope ~205 lbs since we run nothing but stock ballast and people to make out wakes in our X-15. That being said - they are extremely durable and we have taught dozens of people to surf on it. I think most any larger board is good for that - Inland Surfers are great but they are definitely more expensive and a bit fragile for teaching folks. I wouldn't want mine kicked into the back of my boat - board dings and repairs would be mandatory.

Easily repaired with white Marine Tex, if ever needed. Haven't had the need, but made multiple repairs to my epoxy sailboard using Marine Tex. Can't even see the repairs.

We too have a Broadcast and that's what everyone gets to use.
