As a relatively new snowboarder who has no near-term plans to hit the park, should I go with the Proto CT or the SL? I really want a board that will last me for a long, long time and allow me to progress my overall skills.
Also, any binding suggestions? I've been told I should look into the Union Forces, but opinions on this forum seem mixed. I also need some suggestions on the size of the board. I'm 5'11" and around 190 lbs. I'm thinking if I go with the Proto the 157 will be a good fit.
