you need to pick your board based on what type of riding you like to do. since you're in cleveland i doubt you're doin freeriding, i could be wrong tho, so either all-terrain or freestyle. i wear size 12 boots and i ride a nitro magnum and i really like it. i've seen a lot of sales on boards around the internet recently, so just look around and check out the specs on the boards, the manufacturers' websites usually have pretty specific descriptions. rome, burton, ride, never summer, nitro, gnu, are all brands i've heard really good things about.
