Default hello from Miami!!

Hey guys I have a diff scenario than most noobs here... I am 185 lbs 6ft tall size 12.5US shoe...I've only been snowboarding once, last year, and I'm going again in 2 weeks. Last year was the first time I'd even seen snow and I thought I did very well.. I hit jumps, ramped box rails attempted backside 180's. all in all I loved it and I want to get the most from this coming trip. I have a board cuz I convinced some kid in a rental shop to hook it up for $20! its a 150cm Rossignol accelerator. So I progress fast and want to do more this trip (jumps, spins, rails) but I've learned my board is short for me... What would be a good board thats not too pricey and will give good flex + maneuverability + wide for me to progress on??(matching bindings??) I live in Miami so I'm only going once/year so up to $600 THANKS!!

what's the point of spending that sort of money if you're only going once a year?

Why don't you go to Peter Glenn in Aventura by the Palmetto, or the Oakland Park Blvd. store? The guys there will help you pick some gear and everything is on mega sale!

For riding once a year, thats a total waste of your money.

Buy a surfboard.

well I already have a surfboard and I kinda through that # out there really I just want to sell my current snowboard (its way short) and pay a difference for the right board.. I want to go more than once a year I just assume atleast once a year I'll go but most likely 2-3. I was looking at the 09 blunt from burton ($179) and the k2 renegade @ 159w good boards??
