Default 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?

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.
