What size Board?

Recommended Posts

You could ride either one but IMHO when in doubt go with the longer board. Bigger boards tend to land a little softer.

142 or 143 definitely!!! Bigger board means: ride is higher on the water,easier to get it off the wake and up up and away!!

I'm 5'9 160 and ride a 139..

Im trying to figure out what size board would be right for me. 6'1 200lb/Intermediate. Freeride, wake to wake, good pop and forgiving is pretty much all im looking for. Thanks for your input!

I am about the same size (6'2 195lb) and I'm riding a 142 Murray.

im 6'2ish and 180, and i am still loving my liquid force team 139. More than enough pop for me. Really quick in the water.

The bigger board is the safe bet. BUT, a shorter board to me seems a bit more fun. Shorter boards have less swing weight and are easier to spin. Also, I don't know if you are doing Heelside Front Flips, but for me, that trick is about a million times better with a shorter board.

I think either board will support your body fine. The 143 will be more stable, and secure feeling. The 139 might be a little more responsive feeling. But honestly, I don't think that it is a big enough difference to make a HUGE factor. You will notice a slight difference, but it won't be night or day. Of course if you can demo the boards, that would be ideal. I am 5'10 185 lbs and I ride a 136.
