Thank you so much for your response.

The only reason we went with a longer board was because of my weight. At my ideal weight I was told a 142-145 would be about right. We went with a board that was rated for my weight...even though according to my height I should be on a shorter board. By next season I should be at goal weight and will end up getting a smaller board. Maybe I will try renting a shorter board though and see how it feels.

I will definatly work on everything you talked about.
