    Blackball board for 250 pounds

    Do they make a board 54 inches or less that could float 250lbs?

    No worries Abbey. Keep flying the "Charm City" Flag - The O's and the Ravens are going all the way this year.

    Are you just getting into surfing? Only asking because of the "soft top" comment. If so, I would go for a bigger board than a < 54". If you have already made up your mind, I would not take the chance on a shop search for a board that will float 250.

    I would get with a local shaper and construct some mind blowing shape that will have you throwing buckets in a month or less.

    If you are looking for something like a beater board that is a little bit bigger and better i would highly suggest Congo Bodyboards. I sell them at the shop i work at and they are definitely high quality. He makes a 54 and a 56 which feature three graphite stringers so they are more durable than the beaters. The boards are handmade over in California and the guy that owns the company is super nice. Might be worth checking into them if that is something you are looking for. www.congoboards.com

    I recently bought a Congo 54" for my brother who is easily 250. He had a blast on it when they visited last month. I'd let it go for $100 if you are interested. I am in the OC, MD.

    Yeah I'm a beginner/k00k. I may invest in something larger later in the off-season, but for right now I'd like to bypass the surf beaches and stay out of the way.

    The OCMD blackball rule says 54 or less, but a local company Willey, has a 58 that he says should pass by the lifeguards: http://www.willeysurfboards.com/answer.html
    Although, it only has 1 stringer

    I'm looking for something cheapo in case I break it, which is likely.

    On the site they say 175 or less, that's why I haven't picked one up. I also haven't seen anybody real big on one. Know anyone who has had an experience w/ one that's around 250?
