I intend on taking at least one class, hopefully it snows soon or the temp drops so that they can start making snow. As far as the board goes, I decided on the Burton one with is a normal normal board (not camber). After asking around on the store for about an hour someone explained to me the difference between camber and normal the person said "it means that the camber board will have more contact to the ground since it's meant to flex outward and that the normal one with the tips flaring up is more for beginner since contact is on the center making the board glide and turn better" so the person said.
I'm not sure if thats completely true but for 100 dollars on sale, its not bad.
Any thoughts will be appreciated.
