    yes the heavier the rider the bigger the board has to be, only drawback is when the board is bigger i'l have more drag. here's a link for a weight and board chart, really helpfull

    Generally its weight, but personal preferance is the biggest factor. I weigh 165lbs and most would say I should ride a 135-138 area but I like a bigger board. The one Im riding now is a 141. Bigger boards land softer and pop a bit harder while the shorter boards are easier to throw around in the air but due to smaller surface area more impact goes into the body on landings. Have any other questions about wakeboarding I can probably answer them . A good forum is wakeworld.com but in the past couple years its gone downhill with younger snobby people on the board (just my opinion). Most of my time is spent here anyways

    Good chart to get an idea, but I think they have the sizes a little short for the weight. Id say up to 160lbs ~135cm, 160-200lbs ~137-140cm, 200+lbs 140+cm
