I just got this and was wondering how it rides? I'm 5'10" 185lb and I ride the Shane 140. Just worry that it might be too big for me.

I'm 5'10'' 200 and I ride the 139 and love it...Its a super fast board (flat middle stage), has good predictable pop, and is pretty light. In regards to your size, riding longer than 80 ft I would probably want the larger board, but I rarely ride longer than 80'. Its a great board, better than most people give it credit for. O'Brien makes decent boards, its their bindings that are crap.

HA...just noticed this was you -are we still riding on Thursday? If so, you can just try my board and see if you made the right decision!

You should try out the Obrien Coda 141. IMO the 144 Natural will end up being little too big for ya.

I would suggest rocking the 139 Natural or Decade. The New DECADE IS HOT!

It's only to big if it affects the way you ride. Give it a shop and see what you think. Some people like bigger boards some like smaller.
