generally the only differences between the same baord from a different year are the graphics and price.
if you found the 08 version in good condition cahnces are its a lot cheaper than the 09/10 even though its the same board

Usually true, but not always. There usually aren't huge leaps made year over year within on product line, but it occasionally happens (i.e. last year's Arbor Draft and this year's are nothing alike).

The 08/09 Ride Society (Red JB Classics) gained Pop Rods and the MemBrain top sheet over the 07/08 Society (white I believe). The 09/10 Society (silver) has changed to Pop Glass, which is added carbon fibre within the fibre glass to increase the boards pop without making it any stiffer. Other than that, they are pretty much the same. There is a bigger change coming from the current Society to next year's Society UL.

I just picked up a new 08/09 Society myself for less than half of the MSRP, and still about a third cheaper than this year's model with season end sales on.

Every model of the Society rips! Yes the updates are nice and add a little pop, but you will never know if you don't ever get on it. I am just saying that I have had that board in my quiver every year (thinking it can't get any better and it does).

A 12 is too wide for the board. The 157 is only 25.1...you want something 25.8+ for a 12

Unless the OP rocks a really wide stance, and turns his bindings out... Not saying it wouldn't be tight, but if he can ride it comfortably set up like that, it could work...
