Would like to try and find something around 500. Don’t want to spend a grand on the first board

Iím 230 and the liquid force Pod is super fast! My 4 yr old often rides with me and we can surf with no rope with no problem. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190223/c030b9fa7ec588047c1f562f1e60b51e.jpg

I am 230 and i ride a Trident. I've even surfed with my 110 lb son but thats just running straight, long enough to take a pic. I think the Kong would be perfect but they're not cheap.

I'm in the same - or similar - boat. I don't mind spending a little more and this is far from my first board. I've been Riding a 5'3" Hyperlite Shim for a few years now and enjoy it, but feel somewhat limited by it. It rides really deep in the water with my 280lb fatass on it. I've been eyeing the Phase 5 the Doctor as a big dude specific ripper.

The big doctor carried 220# me and my 50# son EASILY. We were carving and actually surfing. No problem. Just a couple weeks ago.
