Thumbs up What is the most important criteria when buying a board?

Hey to all of you,

i have a question to you. So when you buy a new board, what are the most important criteria you look at:

Price? Quality? Design? or anything else you can think of?

it is tuff being a consumer these days, what with all the choices out there.

your weight is important in determining the appropriate length of your board, height is less of a factor really. you may need to indulge in a well known brand in case of issues of reliability and or warranty / customer service, but this is not such a big deal.

if you have huge feet, ie bigger than size 13 etc, then board width is an issue....(possibly)

but whilst i am inclined to say that no one consideration takes priority, but it is a combination of all factors, i guess the most important consideration for an absolute beginner, is one of flex!

(you didn't see that one coming did ya!?)

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I'm with Snowolf...it's a combination of factors for me. Performance usually is the driving force with bang for the buck rounding it out. I could really care less about the graphics or style of the board unless it's absolutely horrid but even then if I thought the equipment was tuned specifically for what I am looking to do and was the best performance/value combination out there I'd still probably go with it.
