I weight 180 lbs and im 5'-9". is this board too small for me. I consider myself an intermediate rider. Right now I have a cwb 142. It has long center fins, and weights as much as I do. it's about 4 or 5 years old Im hoping to get a smaller board with more pop, so I can get better at spinning.

Too small for you. Try the Absolute or Prodigy in the 140.

You might like it, it is definately getting to where it is too small. Why don't you try the CWB Flame 140? It's the exact same shape in a size that would support your weight a little better. In regards to swing weight, CWB has one of the best processes out there. The CAPT system is awesome, basically they mold out the top sheet at the tip and tail to reduce weight. It's still structurally sound with less material outside of your feet, which is where you notice the weight when spinning. You could also check out this years Absolute, a little different and some would say a little better, I would be one of them. Here's their site, check out the CAPT.

Hey there Zane. Whats up man? Mark from GR, MI here, how is my boy Derek doing down there. I hear he qualified top 40. I see you're continuing to ride well to. Nice work.

By the way, craig, the comments above are right on. I'm 5'7" 175lbs and I'm on a 136 board which is a bit on the short end. I'd definately suggest either of the boards mentioned above. Great boards, good pop, fun to ride! See ya'll later.
