I am trying to decide on which board length to go with...I've heard alot of talk about a bigger board giving more pop and softer landings. Gerry Nunn rides that way. I usually weigh somewhere between 135-140 so im just looking for advice on what to go with. Oh and Im considering the 136 and 141 premier. Thanks in advance.

I'm riding a 137 Byerly and just picked up a 141 Premier. I'm gonna test it out tommorow mornin. I'll let you know if there's a noticeable diff. I dont think there will be.

big difference. especially at your weight. I thought the same thing you did, and am now trying to get back to the 136. of course, it is all preference.

My cousin is 145lbs. He rides a 133, but rides my 140 and gets really good pop. I think its all preference, but the landings are so much nicer on bigger boards.

Im 170 and ride a 140 Balance, at your weight I wouldn't go any bigger than a 138

at your weight I would go with the 136, unless you're really tall

I weigh 30 lbs more and I know people close to my size who ride that same board in a 136

Jeff,

If you are thinking about the premeir, you've definitetly got to get up to my shop sometime and check out the new Watson 138 from Liquid Force. Come up and demo it once it gets warmer. Let me hook you up. I guarantee you that you'll love it.
