First board
 
Hi

I am looking a board and i cant choose. My style its more freestyle but maybe its better to have an all mountain/freestyle board for first board.

I checked this ones:

Burton Clash

K2 Raygun

What you guys would choose?

and the size for 1,77m and 75kg i will be 158 ?!

hope you guys can helpe me :D

for all mountain freestyle I would get some kind of hybrid camber. something like rocker-camber-rocker so you get the pop but also less edge catching.
for your weight something between 152cm to 158cm. for beginner shorter boards are easier to turn.

yes, my mistake... i wanted to write 158 :) but between this 2 rockers, wahts the best choice?

I think the K2 is a rocker-flat-rocker. also the fact its slightly directional (not centered), making it maybe a bit weird when riding switch.
its your call.

I'd just go for a reverse camber board its pretty versatile

For the price your paying you can get a lot more from these boards

All Mountain:
TAIPAN AMPTEK | Boards | Rossignol | SNOWBOARD | Men | (has a small setback, with a sintered base)
CIRCUIT AMPTEK | Boards | Rossignol | SNOWBOARD | Men | (small setback, has their "auto turn" camber designed for beginners)

More Freestyle:
TRICKSTICK AMPTEK | Boards | Rossignol | SNOWBOARD | Men | (centered position and also has the auto turn camber)

I also looked at the Raygun, it has good reviews but it doesnt have a lot of tech in it. I would forget about the clash, its a techless extruded base board for $400! Take my money BURTON.
