Help Selecting a board
I have been skiing for a few years now, want to start boarding. I have tried snowboarding and did fall all over the place, but I tihnk I can learn it. I am 19, about 200lbs, 6' tall, wear a shoe size 11. I just bought my season pass at Greek Peak(in Cortland,Ny). They have groomed trails, an alright terrain park and a few un-groomed trails. I mainly like to ski un-groomed trails and just ride the whole mountain. I was thinking of buying a board off the-house.com and can't decide between the 5150 DLR or the Nitro Target. I was thinking like a 161cm board or something since I weigh a little bit more.
Heres what I was thinking.
-Nitro Target Redline 161cm Snowboard
-Sims Optic Snowboard Bindings Black/White
-32 - Thirty Two Prion Snowboard Boots Black
-Bakoda Can Trac Stomp
-5150 Dealer 157cm Snowboard
With probably the same bindings and boots above.
I am looking to spend about $350 Give or take $50 or so. What do you guys think would be best for me? I hear Nitro boards are stiff and could be hard to learn on. As far as bindings and boots I am really unsure of what is good or bad. Thanks for the help.
