Buffalow rides 85-90' at 26-28 mph. It's really hard to describe how big and fast he's actually going until you're actually in the boat because he's so big (320-340) himself. (or God forbid driving it - He literally bent the tower on my old boat),

Pictures & video just don't do his riding justice.

It's a rare session when he doesn't snap at least one board on landing and he always get's completely worked when that happens. Think about how much fun it'd be having that in the back of your mind everytime you throw a big invert.

I personally would recommend a tantrum and scarecrow for begineers as they are not so reliant on strength or technique(like a back roll or raley). I have lost way more tricks than I do now, but anything from a Raley, 540's, back mobes,roll-reverts were all in my bags at one time or another. And Rich even my winter weight is like 310...

Hell I'm 5'8 and weigh 200 and the boat always seems 2 times lower on the side you're on! I better bring the scale!

I learned the tantrum last year at 290. Worked out hard thru the winter and now down to 250. Added the backroll this spring and starting on scarecrows and 3's now.

Is there any video online of Buffalow??? That would be seriously motivational for the big guys trying to put it down.

Im pushin 215, and Im 6ft 1in. Yesterday I hit my first tantrum. I get as high if not higher than everyone else in my boat, so dont let the weight issue bother you. You just have to go for it. Thats what I decided yesterday, and now Im in the invert clubb.
