RE: Carve 144 vs Go 155-170
I would recommend you the CARVE144. Personnaly I have a S-Type 126, but I bought a GO155 (TUFSKIN) for my wife one year ago, and although she has progressed a lot, I find it very heavy. She has actually learned how to hook in the harness, to put her feet in the straps (inner position), but impossible to make her plane. For this reason I have decided to buy her a CARVE 144 WOOD. If the weatherforecat is OK, we'll try it this WE and let you know.
