So ill be keeping an eye on them at the end of the season.
How about an Arbor board? Westmark/Blacklist, Coda. Very very fun boards. Never rode the Lib Banana but arbor rocker is sick, and works.

If you really want the Nug (never rode one so I don't know) another to look at, and only because you can downsize on it, is the Rome Shank.

BA rode a 149 and had a blast. He weighs exactly the same as you. If I'm bored I hope to find a late season deal on one. Not sure I feel comfy being on a 145 though (145 lbs)
