^^^ probably the fastest board Ive ridden. I am 63 200lb and rode the smallest size (46 I think? Maybe 48) and I had to stay on the brakes to keep from shooting into the back of the boat. If you got the bigger size, I dont think youd have any issues letting go of the rope.

What’s the difference between the Red Rocket and Blue Lake ?

Best Big Guy Surf Board

Red Rocket is 2 inches longer and 2 inches wider than the Blue Lake. The red rocket will be much more buoyant.

6 foot even @ 225 here

Red Rocket is a tanker or good for small waves. Rode it double with my 80 lb 10 y.o.

Much prefer a 4 foot 9 inch Soulcraft Voodoo or similar. Call Jeff he is a Surf board guru.

Learned on P5 skims like the Daniello Diamond or Trident.

Ive been using a Phase 5 Trident, its been awesome and used to have a X9 that I could easily surf wth no rope. The Trident is a skim style board for riders 190+ lbs. You would have no problem behind your X10.

Hey guys,

You are right, 225 isn't that heavy and you won't need a massive board to do the job. I'm always happy to give pointers on what you can buy off the shelf, or build something for you if you are in the market for a hand made board.

Spring is finally here - happy surfing!

I just picked up a red rocket and to use with my small DD wake. It’s a giant board that is thick, wide and long (insert joke here ).

I’m hopeful it will help me finally go ropeless on my boat. I also looked at the classics ronix koal and the red rocket was longer and thicker.

I had this same problem over that past couple season trying to get my wave dialed (05 XStar) and a board that worked for me. I am 6’ and 225. I have rode quite a few different boards from many different manufacturers and nothing performed for me like the ParkerSurfcraft 4-8 I am currently on. Their website isn’t the greatest but if you email [email protected] or hit them up on an IG DM he will definitely talk to you about everything and anything you want to know about boards. The customer service is top notch from them.

I ended up going with a Soulcraft Voodoo 4'8" board. Looks very similar to your Parker surfcraft.
Also for the wife a Soulcraft Agave 4'4" as well. Was hoping to get out to the lake this weekend but didn't happen. Hopefully in 2 weeks I will have an update on how the board works for me.
