I'm about 5'1. Weigh 117lbs. My shoe size is about 7 in womens. I don't know where to begin to find the right board for me. Because of my size, would it be alright to get a girl's board vs a women's board? I'd like to find a used board if possible so my budget would be below $250-$300.
O...rent first then, to get an idea of what you do like. And get something in a 147-ish length.
yeah..definetely rent first and learn the basics first so in that way you'll figure out if you like freeride or freestyle later as you progress.and remember if you decide to buy a board later on...see if its available to rent before you actually buy it
I would have to agree that renting is probably the way to go. Especially if you don't know what you would like to ride yet. You don't want to Pigeon hold yourself by buying a board that is built for a specific condition or style. Renting will allow you to test the water and give you a better understanding of what direction you want to go.
