Greetings everybody! I have a question about a board for a portly old man such as myself. Looking for a beginner board that will also serve as the "house board" when newbies join us at the lake. Kids have boards for their friends. This one will be for me and other adults who want to give it a try.

I'm 48 years old, 6' and weigh.... ok, here it is.... 230lb! I have no intention of killing myself so what I'm looking for at this point of my life is ease of use and comfort. I need a board that will serve beginners. A few that I have looked at include:

Liquid Force Trip 146
Obrien Natural 144
CWB Kink 146
CWB Transend 142
Hyperlite State 145

I have based this solely on the description from the mfg. and assuming that the largest board is the easiest. If this is not the case, please let me know. I figure 142ish is the bottom range with 146 being .... well, a boat! What I really NEED is real life experience. Which boards do you and your friends LOVE and which did you have and not really like. I figure to do this once so I'd like to get it right.

Appreciate all of your help!
