yeah- I weigh 250-ish now and 250 when I purchased the broadcast in '06. It's the board that I learned to surf on. There were other boards that were more bouyant and could hold me (aka-225lb+) better, but I figured it out (maybe that's why it took me so long to figure it out :-)? BTW- Im the only one in my crew over 225lbs so I guess I 'took one for the team' in forcing myself to learn on this board vs a bigger one. The other's have learned fine on it.
Also, the main reason why I went with the broadcast back in '06 vs the blue lake, red woody, or landlock was because it was the only big board that fit in my roswell racks...kind of a dumb reason, but I didn't know any better @ the time and that's why I went with it.
