Need help on beginner board.

I am looking to get a nice beginner board. I found 2 boards that are in my price range (325 max). So let me know what you think about these boards and which one to go with. Thanks for your help.

2010 K2 Brigade 159 Wide
2009 Ride Antic 158 Wide

Sorry for the lack of info. I am 6'2 weigh 225, size 14 shoe, regular stance. I live in the midwest so a little to much ice over here. Also I am just starting out so I probably won't be seeing much of the park. Hope that helps.

You'd probably grow into it as you progress. It's not the board that makes you better but you that makes you better. As long as you practice basically you could ride any board.

As a general rule a stiffer board will be slightly more difficult to learn on, but can handle more intense mountain riding in the long run. A softer board will be slightly more forgiving, but will be more tailored towards park/small mountain riding once you have a little experience under your belt. Its personal choice. IMO a board made for everything (flex of 5 / 10) will give you the ability to try lots of different things and help you decide how you want to ride. Good luck, ride hard!

Your kinda comparing apples and oranges. the antic is a camber board, while the brigade has small amount of reverse camber. further, the brigade has a set back stance (1 in. i think...) and the antic is centered. Both are more all mountain try everything boards, intermediate level.

but in any case, you cant really ask people to compare two completely different boards and expect a useful response. if your just starting out you wouldn't notice a lack in quality of either board, and probably wont for quite a while. again, read some reviews on each board, and where it functions best on the mountain, and just ride. almost every board on the market these days can out ride the snowboarder on it...
