New playboat size?

So I was thinking of getting a new playboat (got a LL Cr125 now) and demoed an Agent 6.2. I weighed 178 today, about normal for me. Is this boat a good fit weight wise. I can throw it around pretty easy, but I would like to start to learn some air moves. Will this be enough volume at my size?

6.2 is rocking quick! it took some getting use to but i love this boat more than anyother 178 shouldn't be a problem im about 170 wet with gear so it should be okay! sick boat.

air isn't a problem remeber its all about feeling your boat release from the water before you throw your big blunts. use gravity and some quick edge transfer and boom out of the water!

Dagger lists 190lbs as the maximum recommended weight for the 6.2 so I don't think you'll have too much trouble launching. Casper's right, air on a wave'll come from releasing your edges, to me it feels like when you get bucked on a pair of skis going from one edge to another. If you're concerned about the pop for loops and whatnot, make sure you've got solid foot placement to drive down your bow and push off of to get launched. Throwing in the overthruster, a beach ball or something like that to give yourself a little more volume where it counts will help if you feel like what the boat gives you just isnt enough.
