Brand new to the sport, along with the forums. Located in Alberta, close to Sunshine/Lake Louise. 25 years old, 6'2" and 195 lbs, size 10 shoes. I'm looking at purchasing my first board and have been researching for the last several days. I've basically come down to two options that are available in my area. I don't really have a budget, but these boards including bindings are coming in below $500. My options are 2012 158 Endeavor BOD with Forum Shaka Bindings, 2013 Dinosaurs Will Die 159 KWON w/ Shaka Bindings, 157 LIBTECH JamieLynn w/ Burton Cartel bindings, 2013 Burton Process Flying V 157 w/ Cartels.
I suppose I can switch the bindings out, but that is what is on the boards at the moment. I'm leaning towards one of the first two. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and nice to meet you all!
