I weigh about the same as you and the Pandora is my deck of choice. Very soft and forgiving, but damp enough to feel stable all-mountain. It is a rocker/camber board with vario grip edges for edge control on hardpack and ice days.

The B-nice would be another good option, but the shortest B-nice is probably longer that what you'd want.

The Capita Space Metal Fantasy is a soft, fun board for a beginner.

The Rome Vinyl and K2 Luna (now Lunatique) are two popular beginner/intermediate boards.

The Roxy Ollie Pop and Eminence are also excellent choices, now with rocker/camber and magnetraction edges.

As for bindings, just avoid the cheapest in any brand's line-up.
Burton: Lexas or Escapades
Union: Milan or Trilogy
Rome: Madison
Ride Vxn
Flux GU30
My local REI has the K2 Luna on sale for $189 (146), is this too long for me? The guy also said that the luna is camber and lunatique is rocker??? I'm utterly confused. I have him put it on hold for me till tomrorow since price is so right.
Thoughts?
