I did a lot of research and then spoke to a couple people at the-house.com I wanted to spend less then $250 on just the board since I also have to buy bindings, boots, helmet. They suggested the Sierra V Spot for a great board to learn on. I bought the 147 and they gave me 5% off. I wanted black 2012 Flow Flite 2W but they didn't have them in stock. I found/bought them on another site for $135. The House Boardshop - Best Prices on Snowboards Since 1982 | SNOWBOARD GEAR SKATE SHOES SKATEBOARDS WAKEBOARDS WINDSURFING
