Looking to get into wakesurfing at 250lbs what size board should I be looking at?

+1 for blue lake, for the stage you are at and your size...the blue lake is right down your alley. I am 245lbs and learned on the hyperlite broadcast 5'6" but the only reason i bought the broadcast and not the blue lake was because the broadcast fits into wakeboard racks.

Patrick - I recently went through this discovery as well. At your weight (same as mine), I was recommended an Inland Surfer Red Woody. Bought it last week and it is unreal fast. Amazing difference between it and my old Landlock board. <BR> <BR>You likely cannot go wrong with the blue or woody but I have not riden the blue. Get either IS board. <BR> <BR>Here is a good discussion about this topic: <a href="http://www.centurioncrew.com/Fast-surf-boards-big-guy-t1132.html" target="_blank">http://www.centurioncrew.com/Fast-surf-boards-big-guy-t1132.html</a> <BR> <BR>T <BR> <BR>(Message edited by trevorg7 on July 31, 2009)

whoa. I didn't realize how much wakesurfing dominates the boats forums. 17 out 20 threads on the 1st page of the wakesports section are surfing. That's sicker than swine flu <BR> <BR>(Message edited by CAskimmer on July 31, 2009)
