Definately has been a choice with larger riders especially if you go big. While you could ride the 141....most guys who are really working the board do the larger size.
They offer a 146 in the Nova Core. Extremely fast and edges great. I know I have a couple of the older Nova Core boards from 2009. We bought some of those as they ran out of Nova's early in the season last year. BIggest difference is the channel. It will give you a wider stance option...but you have to ride 2010 or newer Hyperlite Bindings on the newer board. The older board you can ride anything. LInks below.
