Default Reverse camber for beginner?

I'm 5' 9.5" 175 lbs beginner. My rental packages are running out, so I decided to start looking for equipment. The local stores were pointing me towards Lib Tech Skate Banana or Gnu Riders Choice.

First question: which size?

Second question: Would these be good choices for beginners?

Those boards are expensive, that's why they wanted you to buy them.

But it shouldn't matter if the board is cambered or not. Really you're just learning how to turn.

I'd say go with a Capita Stairmaster. Cheap, fun, good at what it does.

God there are so many mountains and shops that are so fucking shady its ridiculous. They are getting as bad as car salesmen...at 175 you should probably ride around a 155-156ish i'd guess..

You dont need, nor should you buy a Banana.

right now you can find alot of great deals on boards.

scare/stairmaster, agents, etc etc.

just shop around. if you want better answers than give us more info to work with. %freeride, freestyle, park, etc etc

and list some boards you're very interested in, not just what the shop wants you to buy, cough cough new vapor easiest to learn on buy 2 just incase.

well i would not suggest going with either one of them as your first board just because of the cost. i dont know what people are saying about the stairmaster lasting 10x longer then the nana because i have not heard that from anyone who has actually rode a nana for a couple year. but i think you should definitely look into cheaper boards for your first one.
