The Premeir rocks! I just picked up a 2003 140 DNA and I am loving it. I have ridden all of the top-end hyperlite boards and the Premeir is my favorite for all conditions. It is a mellow board, but is very predictable in all water and wake conditions. You can't go wrong with the premeir. Check out Grizzly Sports online for excellent prices on the boards, if you don't care about little cosmetic blems, you can get a blem board for under $300. Good luck.
