I went up from an absolute 140 to a Balance 143 and that extra size made a massive difference for me. I am not crashing through the wake anymore and am not struggling to keep from dragging anymore. Size does matter.
Also the balance is a fantastic board.

How tall are you and how much do you weigh? I think it is time for met to look for a bigger board. I am 6'1" and 240 lbs. I currently ride a Premeir 140. I don't have a problem releasing off of the wake, but I find that on my bigger jumps I tend to sink and it causes me to bite it sometimes.

6'5" and 235 pounds and I was riding the absolute 140 which is the same as the premier. I kept crashing through the wake and sinking the board. I went up to the Balance 143 and it made all the difference in the world. Never crashed through the wake. landed 180's both directions and got the backroll all the way over. Night and day. You can get the Balance for around 200 delivered from www.evogear.com. awesome board.
