ahhh upgrades are always fun.

What are you trying to do with the board? Just general riding or more specific stuff? I have the Naish Monarch and love it. I have not ridden a TT in a long while..and this is a great easy going board that holds its edge when the power increases. Has soft landings but what I find good pop.

Happy hunting :-)

Much depends from your spot conditions. It's important will board be used in strong consistent or light wind; chop or flat etc. But anyway size 128 even for your weight seems quite small especially if wind is not always stable. I would better choose something in the range around 130-134cm. Exact size depends from particular board features, like if it's bigger rocker board then better take 2-3cm longer as your normal size. Not knowing more about your specific conditions and riding style preferences from the boards i've tried i would recommend Aboards Z-series in size 130. It's a good board for progress and it behaves well on different conditions, good in upwind, but also have nice pop. Good control as well.

Thanks guys
That last post was really helpfull for me:)
Big thumbs up to u mate:)
And as for my style well dont have a style yet really
Or is having wipouts a style? Lol,
Here in zandvoort its fairly choppy lets say, and hard for a newbie like me.
But try try again right,, i dont have the cash for a brand new board
So will be looking for a nice second hand board,,
The board i have now is heavy as hell,, (i think) maybe just need to get used to it?!
So 130/38 should be fairly good size, any more info will be sweet guys,
And again thanks guys from a newbie,,
Photo is the board i am selling

I can recommend the Xenon Rayo or the Xenon Laluz.
The Xenon's are so easy to edge that you can get a size bigger from your old Haze and then planning comes earlier.
Try demoing one.
