size 9 boots
price range $100-200 with bindings

What size board should I be looking for? Cause it looks like I fall inbetween sizes since I'm heavy for my height. Is this a reasonable price range for a good board to last 3-4 few times a year? Thanks for any help.
You may want to try Play it Again Sports... that's where I got my first board (in San Jose) when I got back into riding after several years off. Still have the Gnu I got there - it's my rock board now. $200 with bindings is doable. Look for one in the 152-156 cm range.
