RJ, don't do it, I went from beginner board, sold that, then intermediate, sold that and now have a Watson 142 board, I weight 188 and am 5:11". Just get the Liquid Force Watson, don't hesitate a bit, spend the money, 100% worth it, carves smooth, good speed, and the pop off the wake is amazing with BUTTER smooth landings that are unbelievable. You'll be getting good air and end up out in the flats with super smooth landings every time!
As noted above the LF Shane is rated highly as well! Go to www.wakeworld.com and read the reviews. Both the LF Watson and Shane are rated top 3 best boards for 07, you won't be dissapointed.
