First Board, have a few ideas but still unsure.
I am on the hunt for my first board. I am a semi-beginner looking for a good freeride board in the 153-158 cm range, I weigh around 160 lbs. I'm a size 10 shoe so probably a size 9 boot. I dont go in the park or anything so just looking for something to get better at carving and everything with. I ride on the east coast primarily at Sugarloaf. I am looking to spend under $250 on my board. So far I have a couple of ideas and these are them:
Atomic Exeter 155cm
Forum Recon 156 cm
What do you guys think? are there other boards worth taking a look at?
