Hey, good luck with your boarding, i have broken my back twice in 6 years, and am ageing quickly as well, 44 now, and feeling it with my back problems...

The board sounds like fun, the bindings are good, i had the same but moved over to flow which i found even easier to use, but i still have my Cinch as well...

The weight thing is something different, and as you find yourself more active this will, or should change, i always put on weight in the summer as i am a lazy sod, so end up 260-270lbs, and i always finish the season at least 50lbs lighter, so i take little notice of the weight and i do actually ride a board as small as 153 at times...

I know it makes a difference, but for how us old people ride, never really gonna notice it in the same way i don't think...

Have fun, stay safe and just enjoy...
