I have a hyperlite broadcast.. and want to buy my dad a board for his birthday. He's a big guys (around 225 lb), 6 ft 2' Any recomendations on a board easy to get up on that would support him would be great(not really concerned about surface tricks). Any help is always appreciated! <BR>-Marc <BR><a href="mailto:savatsky@hotmail.com">savatsky@hotmai l.com</a>

I'm 6ft 4 inches and 230lbs. and ride the landlock. It works fine for me. <BR> <BR>I have heard alot of people recommend the Inland Surfer boards for big guys.

I just got a chance to try the Inlander out last Friday (it's the board Dave is riding in the pics <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/articles/2004/spring.asp" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/articles/2004/spring.asp</a>). It's a very forgiving board and has a ton of flotation. One of the guys riding it was probably about 210# and he had no problem with it. Based on what you've said, it might be a good option. <BR>

Another option is the Trick Boardz. I am 6'4" and 250 and ride the XL very well. Allows for great tricks as well as a forgiving ride where the board does not roll or nose dive easily.
