Beginners Board Recommendations

hey,
Im a beginner, only ever boarded once with hired gear, and loved it
so decided to get my own stuff. Im hoping to find a board that can help me
pick up snowboarding easier. I had my eye on a technine board, but not sure if
it would help a beginner learn quicker.
Could anybody recommend some boards, brands? name? and maybe where i could get a good price on it?
im from sydney. thanks!

whats your weight, height, sex, foot size, what you ride (park, groomers, pipe, backcountry) and people can give you suggestions. Until then, any 5150 or Lamar board thats no more than $160 is perfect

I personally, would skip the 5150 and Lamar. I bought a crap board/gear for my first season, and now I'm upgrading it all. Instead, buy something that you can progress on, Lamar and 5150 will only hold you back after your first week. But the other part of what he said, would help. (I tried to put it in an easier list)

How many times you plan to go next season:
Riding style (Rails/Park, Groomers, Backcounty, Halfpipe, or All Over):

You may as well just go out and buy any random Rome board because it is a guarantee 90% of the people on this forum are going to suggest it regardless of your sex, age, weight, price range, or style.

Don't forget the Rome 390/Targa bindings, either. You're a nobody without those.

Yes. However, I do applaud their marketing strategy. It has obviously worked well for them.
