Yes. Even though scientifically speaking 2 objects will fall at the same rate, there's going to be more resistance against the larger object. It's also going to take more force and momentum to initiate the spin as well as to stop it. Heavier people are also going to land with a lot more force where as a smaller indavidual is going to be more agile
