So i've finally ridden the crap uotta my old o'brien board, time to get a new one.. Which one???
I'm about 6'2 220lbs (all muscles, lol) and my rinding is.. erm.. well.. advanced beginner, i think.
Any thoughts on what board to get? I have long legs and enjoy a wide stance so i'm thinking at least a 142cm board..

I've been selling a lot of the JStar Empire boards lately - Rusty M's board. Demo as much as you can from a local dealer or just make you best guess depending upon what you are looking for in board performance.

Buy the board that best compensates for your weaknesses. For beginners, round ends and center fin. More advanced, smaller fins on the outside. For softer landings a center "spine" in the bottom. For good speed, hooked rails and outside fins. Better pop, 3-stage. Into the flats, continious rocker. Many other variables.

Check out the CWB Factor 144cm is perfect for your riding level and a great proven shape. Jimmy Wolf is ridin the Factor and he kills it on that board. Its great for all levels of riding, beginner all the way through advanced.

thanx you guys. i've been snowboarding since '86 and lately grown accustomed to the longer flowing boards in the snow so i guess i'm looking for that same feel on water too

JStar Conformity has a looser feel.
