Make sure to try the Shinn Monk, I'm in your age bracket with arthritic knees/foot, I have the original Monk (Ape graphic) best board I've had for knees so far, footpads are nice n comfy too.... just like old mans slippers
I've heard the latest incarnation is a little stiffer but haven't tried it yet.
Good luck with the search.
Wider stance will help soften the landings too.
