    Default Best big man surf board??

    Im 6'4" 250 pounds and cant seem to find a wake surf board that seems to fit me. I have tried alot of different boards and just cant seem to find a board for a big guy. Surf behind a 2015 Supra 550 SE with about 5000lbs of weight, everybody else has no problems surfing, unfortunety just the big guy struggles?? any suggestions would be graetly appreciated!!

    What problems do you have surfing? I doubt it's the board with a boat like that it's your technique. Send some video.

    Simple things like having your toes close to the edge of the board keep you in the wave and make the board ride better.

    Also when you are riding look down in the wave. Notice the water in the top part of the wave has a different color then the water in bottom part of the wave. Stay in that part of the wave for best effect.

    If you were on my boat I would put you on my old Inland Surfer Blue Lake with bigger fins. With the bigger fins the board surges forward when you move your weight forward.

    I agree with the post above. I know some guys that ride Supra SEs with P5s, Inland Surfer Red Rockets, or custom boards (like a Choas) that fly. If they are not careful at first, they end up in the back of the boat.

    Im the same size as you and ride the phase 5 trident and just got the the 4-10 ronix bat tail thruster behind my G23. Both can be popped off the wake but the thruster is definitely stickier with 4” fins. I surf with my kids on both boards so I know they are both good to 300# so they would be 2 Good options I would suggest

    I am short and fat at 5'8 265#'s and my wake is smaller than what you can get with an SE. I recently demo'd a CWB Voodoo 58", set up quad fin, and had some of the best rides of my short surfing life. It's not horribly expensive either.
