Default Looking for a new board

A little bit about me. I'm 6 feet, 153 lbs. Size 11.5 boot.

I'm looking for a board that can basically do it it all. I will mainly be carving, and taking it in the park for a little bit.

Not looking for huge speed, but not looking for only park also, just something that does everything.


What is the best board that can really do everything, that I can use for a while and it will be a good investment?

I'm willing to spend money here, but not over $500 I think.

At your measurements, you are looking for a length within the general range of 155-159. A 156 or 157 would be a great all-around board size for you. Is your foot size your snowboard boot size or regular shoe size? At 11.5 snowboard boot size, you could do a normal or wide board. You are borderline. Some boards come in mid-wide which would be nice for you as well. None of this will be a deal breaker for you though so don't concentrate too much on that. With that said, some recommendations

Forum Stomper Snowboard 2009

This one is rockered and is totally up to you. It is a different type of construction than traditional boards. I don't hesitate to recommend rockers to new riders because it is harder to catch an edge on these.

This one is a great deal
