Totally agree... in fact, if you can even try and find one of the few remaining 130cm boards you might love that too.

I am 175lbs and ride the 135cm as my medium to high wind board and LOVE it. Tight turns, huge jumps and nice, light underfoot feel. It is about as close to riding a skateboard or really playful snowboard as you're going to find and it makes sloppy shore conditions a ton of fun.

that sounds perfect...i have an aggression 134x42 now which is great for light/med to medium days but i need something for when it really gets cranking and maybe a surfboard for the light days...

I've got a 135 that I use in ugly breaking bay chop from the high teens on up. Great board. In the mid teens I'm on a 150. In the low teens I'm on a King.

I am a loyal OR customer and have owned a couple of Makos - but I now ride one of these:

Rides great (like a Mako!) and it's a work of art!
