Hi guys - newbie to the forum.
I'm 44-year-old male, 5'10" and weigh 92Kg (about about 205lb). Have been riding a CWB Graffiti (147) for 3 seasons (not extensibly) and I can do some basic stuff (wake jumps, wake 180s etc). I recently tried a rental board at my club - 2000 Blindside Epic 140) and was amazed at how much more pop it gave me compared to the CWB, which I can only put down to the size differential (147 vs 140). Yesterday I tried the Double-up Luke Wulf 142 which, though more poppy than the Graffiti, was not noticeably better than the Epic (remember that's with me riding and I'm pretty crap!!). I'm looking for suggestions: I will probably never do inverts (too old and fat for that), but look to improve my jumps both behind a boat and on the cable ramps. The CWB Prodigy 140 looks interesting but don't want anything that I don't want to spend money on a board that I will not use its full potential.
Thanx
Alexis

I used to ride a cwb graffiti 147 and I switched to a 143 obrien option, it is MUCH better. You can find them on ebay for under 170 US.
