I currently ride a 125 LF fish. Looking to get the new ibex but not sure what size to get. Thinking about a 134. Any suggestions thanks for your help

probably need a 139 then... or whatever the next size up from 134 is... I would even go 143 but it depends on you

well based on size i would say the 138 (or 139 whichever that size is), but if youre used to using a 125 fish going to a 138 would be a big jump. I recommend the 134 for short term, but in the long run a 138 would help you more.
take your pick

i am 5'9 170 pounds and ride the 139 all the way out which i think is a 24 inch stance so you should def. be fine with a 39. good luck with the board i love mine.

Either im losing it or someone else asked this same question this week about the same board who is also 5'10" and weighs 165 pounds

Go with the 139, I went with the 134 and although I love the board I wish I would have went with the 139. I'm also 5'10" and weigh 165

Does anyone else find the Ronix boards run a bit small? I ride a 143 Covin and my bro rides a 137 One, and they both seem shorter than that. Go for the 144! By the way, I'm about 5'11 180lbs and I wouldn't want the 143 Covin to be any smaller.

They measure them end to end. So if you have a board that is pointed on the ends you are really getting a smaller board. My ronix rep told me that the one is about 5cm smaller than they are marked due this.

If you really want a good sizing measure, look at the surface area. This allows you to compare size without having to worry about the shape.
