is this your first board? the timeless is a stiff board, not the best choice for a new rider and no you need a board alot smaller.

yes this is my first board and i've only boarded a few times but i do quite a bit of wakeboarding and skateboarding, race motocross, i pick things up very quick and and am decent for no more than i've ridden but like i said only been a few times. aren't you supposed to have a board that's about chin to nose high though? thanks for the help

I rode a timeless for 4-5 seasons and don't recommend it for a beginner.
It's fairly stiff and being 155 myself I felt that the 159 was too big for me. A great carving board but turn initiation can be difficult at times.

My board is obviously an older model, not sure what's changed over the years.

With regards to board size, someone on these forums put it this way: Your board doesn't know how tall you are, but it does know how much you weigh... so go by that.
