Either a 41 or 42. If you want a durable wood concave, I can say that Sattelyte and Oaks are legit....haven't ridden and '07 LF Impulse though I hear they have improved in quality. I have a Devotid wood flat deck that I love...it's also durable and I know they are pressing a wood concave for 07 as well. A good composite deck is Integrity, but I don't thing they are pressing any boards to be released this year. Look to 08 for these. I'm sure others will chime in with other reputable companies.

You might try a NEW Wakeskate; I just bought one for my hubby and he loves it. You can get a custom one developed for you...that is what I did. They develop it for you based on size, riding style, and preferences.

The Devotid decks are nice; Oak, I believe is sold out right now (???)

I got my 41.5" team machine OAK board from http://www.lakeeffectsupply.com/. He has sattelyte oak and new. I'm about the same weight and height as you. The 42" Molders Blow OAK would be a good board for ya. I was debating between the two so I think he still has it in stock.

Loc: Are you referring to my recommendation? I like the oak board and I know they are hard to get right now so I thought I would save him the trouble of trying to find one. Heres mine:Upload

Oak makes a great board. Showtz, you would get more air if you'd suck those knees up.
