I am 6 ft about 190#'s
Right now I have a 10+ year old wakeboard. Looking to upgrade to the next level I guess, would like to get better and grow with a board, not a newbie at wakeboarding, but now have a better boat off the job and would like to venture out and start some decent air and tricks. So what's a good intermediate board and size for me? I keep reading about three stage boards and etc but not sure what to get?

Liquid Force Watson Classic. 143. Very predictable with good pop.

I am of similar size and I use the Hyperlite B side- not sure of the length I will check and let you know. The board is awesome, the liquid force above is also a great board, can't go wrong with either.

I have had a few Hyperlite belmonts and got a LF Watson 143 last year. By far this is my favorite board ever.

I found a really good deal on a lf Lyman , how us it compared to the Watson or Harley? It is also a 138, is that to short for me? 6ft 190 ish if a Watson is leap forward I will spring fir it forsure

I'm the same size and was riding a circa 1995 LF Super Squirt up until a couple of months ago. It was working and I didn't feel like spending money on a new board. I found a killer deal from another forum member on a new CWB Trancend and it is so good. Way more pop than I was getting before.

I have a 138 Watson and a 139 Lyman. The Lyman board is not as loose feeling as the Watson, so I usually end up riding that one most of the time. 6 ft 175 lbs. If you ride at least 22.5 mph-23 mph you should be ok with a 139 Lyman, otherwise go up a size. I love that board, it has great pop and speed.

Gotcha, check out the ronix vault, it is much cheaper than those "pro" boards and rides just as well. It is designed to help TS edging also. I think a new Ronix Vault is like $250... I ride it, and I would call me self intermediate level, couple inverts couple spins etc...
