Looking at getting a wakeskate. At 200lbs, I figure a 43-44" board is probably right, but I have never even been on one.
Can get a free 41" board, not free, but free with abunch of other stuff I'm buying kind of deal.
Is a 41" board way too small for my size? (I ride a 143 wakeboard, but can hop on a 136 and it doesn't feel a hell of a lot different)

A 41" board will be fine. Most mfgs have added width and cut down on length. It will be harder to find a 43-44" board anymore (there are some, but nothing worth having). I am 6'2" 210 and ride a 41", sometimes a 40". Smaller boards are easier to flip/shuv/spin, and still work great wake to wake.
