Hi Pfaffi, noticed your questions been here for a few days, so heres my take on this.

At 92kg, you will not feel or notice any real difference with the 144 CW the 133. The dimensions are almost the same. The tail on the 144 is just slightly thicker, and the rocker flat is about 1cm longer to compensate for the thicker tail (this prevents the nose ridding to low).

The real difference in volume is only 10trs and can only be noticed by a 100kg plus rider if slogging or uphauling.

You are right in saying that the top pros use the 133 because of the 3 board rule. AA 95kg and BD 115kg kinda shows that the dimensions are key, not volume.

I appreciate that you probably love your 135, but, it wouldnt real be correct to have a 135 and either a 133/144 as both these boards are updated versions of the 135.

The SB briefing on the 133/144 is: 133 for regular gauge riders and the 144 for heavy gauge riders (100kg plus), goes against BD on the 133, but then he is BD and doesnt need the aid of the extra 10ltrs.

For you at 92kg, maybe you should drop the 135 and get the 133. The 09 133 will feel more natural with a 10m because of its wider outline and tail.
