i fall under just about the same weight (125) and height range and ride the 05 Parks 132 bio. If your willing to spend the extra dollar i highly reccomend this board; its super responsive and has crazy pop. Also, i put the 05 state bindings on it which are decent adjustable bindings.

Thats seems like a large board for you size. At your level I think it would inhibit some progress in learning more spins and inverts.

thanks for the input so far. i guess it might be a little big now that i think about it so maybe a little smaller like another 135?

Yeah, 135 seems about right. Getting too big of a board will hinder your progression and just feel clumsy. Like i said i ride a 132.

I have a State 140 but I am a bit bigger, I am about the same level as you are and I am realy trying to decide if I like this board or not. The problem I am having is that I got on a LF Team 139 yesterdy on my 3rd run and added about a.5 feet of height and 3 feet of distance on my jumps.

But here is my take on the State. With the fins it has on it (1.1 A-wing) it is way too tight. It is very rideable with no center fin but it is a bit too lose so I got a set of .7 A-wings and it is just right, for me at least.
