142 might be better though. I can ride 145, but I've been at it for awhile. In the end, the difference probably isn't so huge. Also, what's your shoe size?

I agree with all of Triple8's recommendations.

I'm also 110 lbs., and actually a bit shorter. I handle a 145 NS Infinity just fine, so if you're a bit taller, it might be even easier for you (in...

I don't know why people frown at packs. I got sick of unstrapping and hoofing it to the lodge to get water. I found that when I had a hydration pack, I was never thirsty, spent more time riding, and...

I guess I should be kind of thorough when answering this:

It really depends on what kind of bumpy/choppy you're talking about.

This thread blows my mind.

Neni, out of curiosity, how tall are you? I'm also 120 lbs., and on any board larger than, say 150, the stance would probably be much too wide even at the...
