Hi Eric b,
The Futura line of boards are quite good. I don't thnk you can go wrong with
the Futura 141 and your skill level.
The Futura will be more fragile than your old Ultra Cat, but if you take good care of
it (most damage occurs off the water except for nose dings from catapaults), keep it
in a bag to minimize transport damage, it will serve you well.
Hope this helps,
