helping a friend start snowboarding

trying to help a friend who wants to get into snowboarding for the first time. he's a pretty fast learner and determined when it comes to learning new skills so i'm leaning towards an intermediate board so that once hes past the beginner stage he won't have to grab a new board. he's 6ft and 165lbs. i have some 07 cartels and 07 shaun white boots that i can sell him for $150 and that leaves about $150-250 for a board(his total budget is $300-400).. so either a used or new board will suffice. looking forward to your opinions on what i should get him

also size wise i was thinking around 155 or 157


cheers

I learned on a K2 Fuse. It's a mid-soft flexing all-mountain board. If you can find one of those secondhand he's probably set. I learned on a 158.

Any board with the right length should be good enough (matched to weight and boot size). I helped a few friends pick up snowboarding and they started on a variety of all mountain boards. Could have gone with a freestyle twin since some of them love the park now.
