I've only been twice, but have fallen in love with snowboarding. I really want to grab a board sometime in late March because I know they'll be cheaper then. Obviously I'm a beginner, but am doing really well getting down green and blue trails, I still fall often, I can turn and stop well heel side and well enough toeside.
I want a beginner board that will last me a while and allow me to progress. I want to be able to learn on the slopes and in the park!
Some boards that I've looked at:
Ride compact (I'm leaning towards this one)
Any suggestions or advice would be sweet. Thanks!
*****By the way:
I am 5'4 / 5'5
I weigh about 110
Any suggestions for board length would be good too, I was thinking something like 143
Your weight would be helpful in determining length. I'd also be leaning toward the Ride out of those choices. Not sure if it has a soft flex and a rocker profile, but seems like those attributes help out beginners.
