Looking into getting an Absolute...riding a Subjekt 137 right now...intermediate skill level...5' 9"....155-160lbs...won't get the opportunity to demo so what size would you all recommend? Would go with the 135 as I'd prefer a smaller board I can throw around easier but have had problems (e.g. swamping the nose when landing with weight forward and getting dumped) with smaller boards where I'm at the upper limit for recommended weight...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would normally say a 141, but if you like small boards....

134 is pretty damn small. Evan is about your weight and a few inches taller. He loves the 141.

141 will be faster for you and will land way better. That would be my pick.

Have ridden both the 141 & 135 Absolute Platinum (small center fins on both). Normally don't ride smaller boards well, but was completely comfortable on the 135. I own the 141, and will probably stay there, might be better in rough water conditions, but would not hesitate to go 135. 6'...200lbs / avg/intermediate skill level (hs/ts w2w grabs & 180s, 1 invert)

The absolute 135 is good for up to 170lbs. That would be the one for you. Either absolute the platinum or the absolute.
