Forum Raider Snowboard Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

There's no reviews and surprisingly fits not just my size but my budget. I just want to know if it's any good and for a beginner

That board is known more for big guys. It is heavy and may tire you quickly as beginer. I would keep looking.

My first board was a GNU CHB 161W. I'm 6'3 190 so a bit bigger than you but I felt like I was able to learn on this board real quick. I have a size 12 boot, slightly smaller than yours and I can almost lay down and not scrape toe. The 161w has a nice 265mm waist so it should definitely be able to accomodate your extra half boot size. Google GNU CHB and you can find them in a bunch of stores for right about $200.

GNU CHB Wide at Lenitech Snow & Skate

Is this the same board? Unfortunately despite being 157cmW, it doesn't show the WW

It would be good for any big footer over 200 lbs.
