New Board Sizing Help
 
I am looking to buy a new snowboard. 31 years old.....haven't went riding in 5+ years.

I am 5 9" or 5 10"
Weight 180-185 range.

What would you recommend for a cheap board to beat up and what size would you recommend?

Oh, and my boot is a 10.5.

I'm the same size as you. As far as length goes, stick to roughly 155cm-160cm. Lower range for park, higher for outside the park. For waist width, try to stay in the low to mid 250s (mm), but there's always a little wiggle room for these numbers.

I recommend the Flow Era 155 as a all around twin. It does everything well for under 400 bucks. Especially if you are just kickin around the resort.

same everything, just foot 9,5 size, ride 159 board all around, I'm not a park guy, I like to bomb the hill at high speeds.
