Advice for a Beginner on the Market
 
Hi, I just started snowboarding this winter. I got a complete beginner's package to a resort I live close to, from a relative for Christmas. I loved it, and have been going back once or twice a week. I've been taking the resort's lessons, and getting pretty decent. I think I'll probably finish this season on rental boards, but I think that by the end of the season, I would like to buy my own board. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with sizing. I'm 6'2", 180lbs, and have a shoe size 13. I'm also 14, so I haven't completely stopped growing, but the brakes are starting to come on, as I would like, if possible, the board to last me somewhere around 3-5 years. What size board do you think I should pick up?

I have my eye on this Ride Agenda Wide Snowboard 2013 | evo outlet. What do you guys think?

Thank you in advance for any advice. :D

I've just bought one of these, It seems like a good board, compared to a few others I have been on...

I'm 6'2" 264lbs and size 11 feet might be worth checking this thread, http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...oard-help.html

I was in the same situation and they covered everything :)

That's what I was thinking, do you think 161 would be fine? I've also seen some 163 boards and was wondering if I wouldn't be better off going for them...
