Buying my first board (beginner/intermediate)
This is my first season snowboarding and I have been on the slopes for almost 10 times. My skill level still kinda falls under the beginner class. I can link turns pretty smoothly using my shoulders and knees but I tend to panic when I'm stating to gain speed and lose control. I can use my heel side to stop very confidently but is still afraid to brake with my toe side in higher speed.
I went to Mountain Creek in NJ a while ago and was able to ride all their green trails and some blue ones. I tend to pick a more all-round board as i would tend to learn tricks/jumps in the future.
The rental gear I have been using are mostly the Burton LTR 154 and 160.
I weight 176 lbs at 5"10 with a shoe size of 9
I did some research on the forum and found this Rome Tour 2013 which seems like a pretty good fit for me:

I'm wondering if this is a good choice for me and also open to any suggestions
Big thanks ahead!
