Does not matter what kind of board you ride
I am brand new to this forum and reading all of these "what board is right for me?" threads I'm already sick of it.
It doesn't matter what kind of board you ride, it matters how you ride it.
I grew up riding a t-bolted, 27" stance, burton air 1990 directional piece of shlt! I learned how to ride on that, then gradually moved my way up to the newer ones. (
Anything out there on the market today is going to be top of the line from last year. Even those Gunu POS or Lib Technologies are better boards than none.
Just go out there and have fun.
