I say yes you need a wide board and a length of at least 160.

What can you do on a board? 5150 is great if you get out once a year, but anymore, and it's not worth it.

what can i do? well idk, i almost own at anything i do, im nasty at quads and mountain biking, but this is completely different, ive never been on a snowboard..in my life i never have, but yeah about getting out on a board thats what one of my friend says, he says he wouldn't try anything hardcore with this board, and i told him that this would be kind of a test..like a trial run just to get the feel of it, if i like it i'll probably get a ride or nitro, or something similar and start going to mountains...the reason why im looking up this board is because i can get lamar bindings, head boots and the board for about 320 total and my buds say that thats not a bad deal so i figured i'd come here lol. thanks

Well...can you turn and stuff? Or have you never tried snowboarding before? I'd rent the first few times you get out, then decide from there what you do like and what you don't like. It's a bit of a waste of money to buy an absolute beginners set up to use it a few times and either a) have to upgrade, or b) sell because you don't like it.

5150 is ok, you can more than likely get something that will give you more bang for your buck. And you go cheap on the boots. pretty much you can do alot better for the money you are looking to spend.

Rent for sure, a couple times. Rent a wide board, rent a standard width board, and try some different sets of boots, then you'll be better armed to get what you actually want when you buy. My first board was an M3 Discord 161.5, probably a little big for me, but it sure taught me how to ride. Knowing what I know now (Only 3 seasons more)the Discord seems to fall into the intermediate category for snowboards, not as forgiving as a full out beginner board but it won't beat you up to bad if you are inexperienced.
