Looking to pickup a 2011 134 ibex for a good deal. But I am worried about the size.

Primary rider is 170 pounds 5'10".

Secondaries are 145 and 185 pounds.

Would I be better off getting a board that is longer, even if it is not the ibex?

Other option would be a 139 vault...

Though the Ibex is a wider board, a 134 is still too small for someone of 170 pounds, I would even recommend a bigger board for the 145 pound rider. A 139 Vault would be a better option for weight range. Or check out a 139 O'Brien Decade! Not the most expensive and one of the easiest riding boards on the market that still shreds!

Thanks for the input... going with the Vault.

Let me know how the toe side feels on the vault. I know it's not the typical symmetrical set up, I just don't know how much of a difference it makes. They say it makes the toe side edge easier to get into than a typical board.
