Even at your light weight the 147 cc is going to feel loose and jibby. If you want a board that will be different then the riders choice is the better pick. Your going put on a little weight at some point.

The Rider's Choice seems like a board I could definitely grow with. I think I'd find myself wanting to upgrade in a year/2 if I got the CC.

I was planning on trying to put on some weight this summer - get to 130-135ish.

You WILL find yourself wanting to upgrade after 2 years with the CC. I love my board, but already feel like I need something more after my 2nd season with it.

Upgrading in 2 years isn't a bad idea either though. By then you'll hopefully have a better idea of what you like and have a chance to demo some gear

I think it'll just come down to price.

I can get a CC for 279, while I'm looking to pay near $400 for the Skate Banana and the Rider's Choice.

You and Derp are both right.

I love my GNU CC, but it has become my early season board/night time icy shred board. I have since moved to other boards.

However, at $280, that's a fucking fantastic price for a board that will, pretty much, do everything.

I ride a 153 CC and I'm about 5"6, 130 pounds. For me its really forgiving and fun though at higher speeds it feels kind of sketchy.

Being a Never Summer fan, have you considered something like the Proto? More of a mid-flex but a true twin, built like a tank and will take you from all mountain to pow to the park. Something to think about. Shortest they make is a 152. Dont know if that would be too long for your feather weight.

So I picked up the Riders Choice today, but have a few concerns:

-It seems a tad too big
-The edges are rusted to all hell!! Should I be concerned?
