I used the search already
After weeks of doing research, i've decided that i'm going to buy the 2009 Ride Control board. Everybody says that it's a good beginner-intermediate board that i won't outgrow too fast. Now the only problem is that the weight range that the specs show are too close to each other.
Rider Weight 75-125lbs (146), 100-150lbs (151), 115-165lbs (155), 130-180lbs (158), 140-190lbs (162)
Right now i weight like 178, but i just returned to the gym and i am planning on trimming down to 170-172. That qualifies me for the 158cm and the 162cm. I only ride the mountain right now, but plan to try the park once i get better. is the 162cm going to be too big for the park? Is the 158cm going to be too short and unstable for the slopes?
Also, any recommendations on wich bindings to pair with this board and Salomon Symbio boots. Everybody says that they have a lot of flex and that i need good bindings. Can i find something below $150 that would be good?
