Thanks guys, now that I have a few board names I can do a little bit of research.

I live in Australia now, but I'm moving to Vancouver at the start of April and will be doing my shopping as soon as I get over there, hopefully there are still 2010 boards around then on discount!

I have only a few days snowboarding experience but I picked it up fairly easily (doing intermideiate runs), but I'll be doing a whole season so I want a board that I can really grow with.

I'm 5 foot 10 and around 160 but I'll probably go a 153-155 purely because my first day snowboarding the rental shop gave me a huge board, up to my forehead (so around 166 I guess), and I couldn't even turn it properly... so now I'm paranoid and want to get a much shorter board. For me, speed isn't such a huge priority but I want to be able to turn and manouvre easily.
