Arbors are quality boards. My husband, who is close to your size, has the Roundhouse, which he absolutely loves. He's an ex-surfer, so he loves the surf-inspired topsheets and the way the board rides. He prefers riding in the trees, but wishes he had something smaller and more flexible for jumps.

If you are interested in Arbor, I would suggest getting a board that is more versatile than the Abacus. Consider the Wasteland, which is a mid-wide and the Roundhouse, which is the widest Arbor. Keep in mind that the Roundhouse is a VERY stiff, fast board.
