Default Need board for a 6'4, 190 pounds intermediate snowboarder!

Hey everybody,

I have been renting boards for a while and I think it is time that I'll buy my own board now. im looking for an all-mountain board. My problem is that I'm pretty tall (6'4). My shoe size is 11.5 (US size). My budget is pretty limited (absolute max 400). I have been checking out the burton clash and bullet, but I wasn't really convinced. I also took a look at a couple of Ride boards. I just dont know enough about what board/brand/size is best for my height and weight. Also, should i get a regular or wide board? 11.5 is just in between regular and wide right?

Hope you guys and girls can help me

I have small feet, dun really know. From what I see size 12 is the cut off. Is that your regular shoe size? 11.5. People may usually tell you to go try out every boot they have at your local snowboard shop, they should be snug, and you may actually half size down, so potential size 11. I say you can go either or, wide or not; but I'm not too sure.

Shop for last year's gear, 50% off. Atomic Hatchet's a valued board, good bang for the buck, range $160-230. Capita Stairmaster or Scaremaster? See if you can pick up last years K2 Darkstar or Believer, or Rome Agent or Slash for half off.

Look around sierrasnowboards.com , dogfunk.com , backcountry.com , the-house.com ; if you see something you like on sale, your size, look it up, do some research on it. Good luck, happy new years.

You should check out the Ride Decade (164 wide). You can pick up last year's model for ~$200. There are several reviews and all seem to be positive.
