Influence has been around as a model for a long time now. Pretty middle of the road design made to be versatile and work with both straps or boots. Never heard anyone say anything bad about em.

I wish I could comment but I've held on to my 2012 as I love it so much.

I do know they kept the shape (maybe tuned up a bit) but they made the board a lot lighter and added some bottom shape for better grip.

The 2012 is fantastic with boots, is really comfortable to ride and has great pop. Feels good with straps as well depending on what you're looking for. The shape is really versatile I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Sounds awesome! I'm 190 cm tall and weigh 90 kilos. I ride with straps. Should I go for the 137 or 141?

I think I would say the 141, it rides a little slower for its size due to having a little more rocker than most freeride/freestyle boards. I am 63 kg and ride the 137 with boots

As long as I can hold an edge and stomp for good pop with 141x43 with straps, then I would love to go for that size! :)
