Yeah, you should be perfect - most reviewers consider it an intermediate level board. It probably is overkill for a beginner and not quite enough board for really advanced riding, but should be spot-on for the intermediate range.

No worries, mate - just that the Cobra was probably the most discussed/hyped board on this forum during the last half year or so...

Cool, that will leave me plenty of room for progressing then.

Just put in my order for a 155 Cobra - in my heart I really wanted the Heritage, but my brain/cool judgment prevailed and I went with the Cobra.

Also, same question to you that I put to Leo in the other thread:
How did you find the combination of the Cobra and the Contact Pros? Did you ever feel like you wanted a slightly stiffer or lighter binding?
Background: I will initially go with my L/XL 390 Bosses (and my size 10 Vans Fargos) which are pretty similar to the Contract Pros (responsive base plate but soft-ish highback), but open to changing/upgrading...

I was told that they're trying to get them all shipped before Thanksgiving.

Also, if it helps, I was told this yesterday.
