First Board, what size is good for my weight/height?
 
I am 5' 6" and weigh somewhere between 130 and 150 lbs...not sure if that is specific enough for my weight, but I do not own a scale >_<

Any idea what is good for me, or should I go find a scale?

Orrrrr do I need a more specific weight?

what level are you?
what type of riding do you plan on doing?
what size boot do you have?
What models are you look for?

Any profile preference?

I am a beginner who started this season. I plan on just all mountain but some park as I progress, with a good amount of rails. My boot is size 9 and not sure what model board I am going to get yet. Thinking about the Gnu Street (you mighta responded to my other thread the other day).

I would say 150cm mid flex board. get a hybrid board. good for all mountain and occasional park.

Hmm, if a board is only available in 149 or 152, would 149 be the better bet, or would the difference just be insignificant?
