Hey everybody looking to purchase an orca and can’t decide on what size to get. I’m about 140 pounds without gear 5’6” and size 10 boots. I’m wrestling with whether to go to 147 or 150. Thoughts?

Yikes, almost same size as me. Perhaps I am a few lbs lighter. I was also looking at size 147. There's a big gap in waist width between 147 and 150 - 257 vs 265mm (the it differs only 2mm to longer and short board).
Since I have a trip to Japan booked there 150 is the better choice...or? Better float but is edge to edge speed sacrificed?

that’s EXACTLY what I’m debating...seems like the 150 will float better because of the width differences not so much the length.

@Nivek saw you ripping the 147 on can kevin carve it...still feel like 150 is the right call for a 145-150 lbs rider? As a sidenote I feel pretty smart for figuring out that nivek spelled backwards is Kevin. ?

While we’re at it what size for me about 225lb no gear on, size 12 boots 6’4
159 - you are quite tall and weight near 240 geared up. I weigh 6’ 220# geared up so I ride the warpig at 153 ( Orca at 156 )

My coworker got one. He demod one and ended up with a 150. He's 200 lbs and 6ft.
