Harley Board
 
Hey guys,
I currently have a ronix one time bomb and am thinking about purchasing a Liquid Force Harley. I am 6,2 and at 180 pounds. I only wakeboard behind boats and I am having a hard time choosing between sizes 139 and 143. Thanks for the help

I have a 139 harley and am 5'8'' and 175lbs lol. bigger isn't really a bad thing until you get into dealing with swing weight on mobes and stuff, I went with the 139 because my wake is small, sea ray 220 select, and I'm a tad shorter than you. If you're riding behind a boat with a big wake do the 142

143 for sure. The only negative of bigger is swing weight and it is extremely minimal. It helps with pop and landings. I'm 6'1, 195 and ride a 145. For reference, look how small Scott Stewart is and he rides a 142. I was worried about length when I switched from a 142 up to a 145 but I'm glad I made the move. To be fair though, my 145 board is lighter than my 142 (Hyperlite tribute 142 vs. Hyperlite Marek Nova 145). At your size though, I would never go below 141.

I've had one of each this year, and think the 143 is the better size. 6'0" @ 185 lbs.
