Default Solace if it's cheap

I started out on the ride solace in traditional camber. It was a good board, good price (a couple seasons old when I got it, paid $150 for a complete setup) It definitely helped me build my confidence riding because it was mellow and predictable; I was able to get down all the runs I tried on it. After a couple seasons I felt like I outgrew it, and wanted something more fun and to try the park, but the board was still in really good shape, so durability wise it's a winner. I'm about your size and I had a 146 which was comfortable.

If you can get it in the upper 140s size-wise and for a good price (like $100 tops, especially because I don't think they make it anymore) I say go for it. Otherwise, I'm sure there will be other, better recommendations coming your way. Sorry, I haven't tried any of the other boards you are considering so I'm no help there.
