I ride a Broadcast 5.6 and a Trick Boardz Mojo XL. I weigh around 220, both boards are big enough for me, not sure why entrust's friend had trouble.
For my riding I found the Broadcast easy to learn on. I still ride the Broadcast a little, but after riding the Mojo for a while I find the Broadcast to be slower and clumsy. With the Mojo I can use much more of the wake than on the Broadcast.
