i wouldn't dare screw my bindings on a board bigger than 151!
and the 141 starts as early as necessary IMO, meaning not constantly overpowered ?!?

well, they got no flex at all

that's a thing i never got.
when riding a PF, i can look into the waterstream created by my tail and it looks absolutely the same than on a fulltail board.
the water seems to ignore the fork.
