Try a few..
Dont think you could go too small ; you`ll be swapping board in under 2 seasons anyhow so dont worry about weight gain !!!
Why would I swap a board after 2 seasons? The slight improvements in performance developed over a 2 year period are hardly worth paying $2000 for if you've already got a good board. They ARE worth paying when you're going from a 106l freerider from 2005 with soft deck syndrome to a smaller, lighter and more recent board. In fact, I've been dealing with chop and high winds so far on my 106l, which is already a SO MUCH better than the 130l bic I used to use which was just retarded for my weight, (but it was my first board, i thought it was small at the time, etc,etc) that I think that just about anything smaller/more modern will have more control/comfort in higher winds.
