That definitely sounds the wrong way round to me :-? I'd say keep that as the strap board and get a 144x43ish board. You're a much bigger guy than me and my board at 137 feels the perfect size for me! I've been on the 2011 aboards w-series for a while now and am digging it big time, so here's a shameless pimp for the 144 w-series for you :wink:
Seriously you can strap boots to any board and have a good time, but as starsky says you never fully appreciate them til you get them on a proper wakestyle board :)
What's the W-series like? I ride the 2011 custom 140 and it's farken awesome. Goes well in the choppy swedish waters.

at 6' 5" and 230 you defnitely need to go bigger than that Lunacy... my strapped board is bigger than that and im 5'8" and 160lbs. My wake is 138x 42.5 and thats perfect for me... except I want even more rocker, Its around 5.25 now and 6cm is my new minimum

get a 145 x 43-44 for your wakestyle board, and at that length make DAMN sure you got well over 5cm of rocker!

I wrote a review on here about it, you can check it out at:

Haven't ridden the 2011 custom but I definitely prefer the w-series to the 2010 custom. Found the 2010 way too flexible when you booted up. At the end of the day it's personal preference what you go for, if you can get a demo then do it :thumb:
