I got into wakeboarding just this year and my husband and I got a board we both could ride O'brien vision 140, well it is way to big for me and I want to buy a board that fits me so I can show my full potential of riding. I am 5'3 and 110 lbs.

Check with the board shops in your area about their demo programs. Most of them should be about to start selling the demo boards, so you could get a great deal. Also, most shops will allow you to apply part or all of the demo fees toward your purchase. You're currently on a continuous rocker board, which I prefer, but you might want to try a 3-stage board. Maybe a LF Diva or O'brien Vixen. Once you determine if you like the 3-stage or continuous rocker better, that narrows your choices way down. You probably don't need anything longer than a 134.
I'm looking for a new board myself, and so far I've demo'd 5. I really like the LF Team 134, which is the same as the Angel just different graphics - it's very fast and has a good pop.
Good luck and have fun.

P.S. Could you put on about 15 lbs. or so. You're making the rest of us look bad!

I ride the O'brien Demented 131, and love it! I'm 5'4 and 110 lbs, and I've found the boards in the range of 131-133 to be more favorable. I agree w/ Clarissa, you need to demo a few different board to get a better feel on what you like to ride i.e. 3-stage, continues, different fin options, and so. Also bindings that fit are key!!! Good Luck :-)
