I bought this for the kids to learn to kneeboard, wakesurf and such, can this hold the weight of a 200 lb adult. the video shows adults using it?? They love it.

I can't speak directly about this board, but we ended up breaking our OBrien Funboard in its second season of use. The construction is probably the same. In my case I think a nephew was jumping on the board and the rigid plastic reinforcing rods ended up popping through the foam after it submarined. The plastic bolt holding the tow harness also broke. The kids did have a great time with it ranging from just laying on it like a sled, riding as a kneeboard to surfing it.

Ended up replacing it with a kneeboard that has the handle hook making it easy for my 5 year old to ride it.

sled, my kids love it, progresed from the funboard. easy to lay, kneel and eventually stand for the kids. i want to try it surfing for the old man, i think i need to start deep water, my weight would probably snap the foam, where the hook is attached.;)
