my two bigger friends (each over 220 lbs) can surf just "pinching" the rope on the Swallow, but both struggle to drop the rope.
Everyone under 210 who tried my Swallow loves it.
My boat is a 2009 supra 21v with a custom 1400 lb sac, plus the stock bow sac and some human ballast. I'd categorize the wave as "medium".
One of my big friends just ordered an Inland Red Rocket - he's 235 lbs with size 15 feet and is 6'9" and he just needs a bigger platform. My other friend is just, ahem, "large bellied"
