So I weigh 180 the 135 says 80 - 180 the 139 says 120 - 210 and the 143 says 150++ <BR> <BR>I have only ridden a wakeboard 2 times, are they more easy to turn on the smaller they are? Are they harder to get up on the smaller they are?? <BR> <BR>**EDIT Its the Free Motion DRIVE*** <BR> <BR>(Message edited by kgoings on May 11, 2005)

143 <BR> <BR>think about it. the difference is minimal. 135 to 143 is only 8 cm. 4 cm per side. that is less than 2 inches. the added weight will be nominal but more surface area to land on usually means softer and more stable landings(pending your form is good). <BR> <BR>(Message edited by toolfan on May 11, 2005)

Some will argue but bigger is better. Turning isn't a big part of wakeboarding. Bigger board will be easier to control and much easier to land. You would be fine on the 139. I personally would go for the 143.
