Need help with a new board
So i stopped snowboarding when i was probably in 8th grade and decided to start again last year im 20 now. I used to be decent so i thought i would buy a nice setup considering i could pro deal the gear through my work. I got a 09 k2 darkstar 157 wide, k2 t1 db boots, k2 formula bindings. I finally got to go out and use this setup and i found out i wasnt as good as i thought i was and the board was just way to wide and it was really hard to turn/carve and wasnt very forgiving. So im looking for more of a beginner all mountain board thats more forgiving than my darkstar. It has to beable to turn alot easier. I dont wanna go with a wide board it just didnt feel right but i do wear size 12 boots. I wont really be riding powder cuz i go to mountain high in socal. As far as my budget goes im trying to sell my 09 darkstar at the moment and i already have bindings and boots i really like. Looking to keep the price down so im looking for a recommendation of a 09 board. From what i understand its easier to progress and turn/carve on shorter boards so im probably looking for something around 157ish. Im 6'3 185lbs. Bottom line is i just need an easy to ride all mountain board, i really need to develop my carving better so i can keep up with my friends.
