I'm in the market for a Westmark as well, it seems to fit the profile for the kind of board I'm looking for to compliment my cambered Burton Custom. You weigh like 20 lbs more than I do, and the problem is they don't make the Westmark under 150. How do you think this board would match up for my weight? I'm thinking that although it may not flex as easily for me, the length relative to my body weight might make it a little better in pow for me than it would for you.
Thanks, appreciate, just trying to get the word out more about this board.

At 125# a 150 would be fine. You're right in that it would blast through pow better for you. I think you'll find it's pretty playful, especially when you get the balance points dialed in for pressing and the fiberglass softens up a little. IMO, the board may not be rail specific but you can still do most anything you want on rails or flatland once you get dialed. If you did nothing but rails and urban stuff, I might point toward a different board but if not, the Westmark kills everything.

It's really a killer package and the only besides the lack of damping that you might not like is the durability. So far, I haven't had any problems but I haven't had it long enough to say it's good, either.

I did Killington this weekend and was blasting off huge back side air ollies off some of pow mounds from the snowguns. Soooo much fun. The thing snaps unbelievably well for a full reverse camber stick.
