Board Sizes
 
Hey,

What are your thoughts on board size? I mean I am 145lbs and 5'6"... I currently have the 135 Watson board, but I keep second guessing myself I ordered a board that is to small.

Also, Final question is what are some key differences between the 2013 LF Harley, and 2013 LF Watson?

I have the Watson, but not to sure if maybe the Harley would have been a better choice?

A 135 will be perfect at 5-6, 145. No doubt.

The watson is probably the most liked board and best selling board in the LF line up. Don't think you made a bad choice at all. 135cm is fine for you. I'm 165lbs 5'7" and ride a 138cm. If you ride cable a lot, it's not a bad idea to go a little bigger though.

Yeah, I know everyone loves the classic. This is the Watson Pro Model I have, They dont make the classic no more. Also I have the 136 peak for rails.

For the past couple of years I have been riding the Murray Nova 137. I am 165#. Last summer I went out to The Boarding School with Murray and the first thing they told me was that my board was too small. Right away they put me on a 142 and it made a huge difference. Bigger landing zone, more stable, etc. It was a little harder to get around on spins and inverts, but it was negligible. I was sold and purchased a new board as soon as I got home.

I ride a watson 138 and just got a slingshot 137. Weigh 175-178 or so. Think I may too but a tad bid on the small side for a board but who knows
