new to snowboarding. my husband is an avid boarder- but i am not. was trying to decide whether to pick up skiing or boarding, but i think i am going to boarding because it seems to be something more my style. the issue is- of course- because i am a n00b, what kind of board. i am not really into the tricks and pipes. i am 5-6 170 lbs (not really fat though muscles- so dont go there---) and i am noticing that a lot of boards are recommended for chicks who are under 150#. i was thinking of going for a 150-155 cm board, possibly a lamar? i know i have a lot of choices. many of you are going to say rent first, dont drop cash on something you may not like etc etc etc... i read the posts.
thanks for your feedback.
