Ride Society or something else?

so while at Tremblant this past week, i switched skiing with my friend for snowboarding, and i feel like starting again. i stopped boarding last year, middle of the season, and took up freestyle skiing. but trust me, i'm no noob, i had 5 years experience, and now i'm looking for a park board. i'm looking used, and i found a 157 Society with soem ride alpha bindings for 350 cad. i'm 5'11, 185lbs, and pretty experienced. i assume that puts me in the 156 range. would the society be a good buy, or should i opt for a different board, like a forum youngblood? the main deal here is i want something cheap to get me back into the sport.

I'm your height but a little less heavy. If I were to get a new board for park I would go smaller than 157 and I'd probably get the K2 WWW, pretty cheap, $200 or less or I would get this Rome Snowboard Rome Artifact Snowboard

haha if my mom say that she would beat me. nice base though. yeah i was looking at the www, but i'd prefer not to order from the US. last time i did, the fees were not nice.

With the sales going on right now, you might want to consider buying new. I picked up a WWW with bindings for almost the same price as your buddy's setup (in CDN $) shipped to Toronto. Just get it shipped expedited so there's no brokerage surprises. The only thing you need to pay when it arrives is the taxes.

In terms of board size, a 152 to 154 would probably be better if you're looking for all park but a 156-157 is fine.

BTW, is your buddy's setup all 2009 stuff or older?
