Im sorry about starting another topic like this, but I need help finding a board. Im 5'11, 200lbs. Im confused about what size and width I should get. Some people have said 160 wide because of my weight, others said I can use 158...idk what to do! lol. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Well you would probably go with the 160 if you're trying to ride all mountain.

You going to have to spend more then $200 to get a decent board.... $350 is about the cheapest good board I know of.

look around for some of last winters 160s. you can always get a deal on boards that have been sitting around for a year.

Yeah I've been looking at some older boards. I found a Rome Agent for sale on craigslist near me for $350. Snowboard with Bindings, 160 Rome Agent good deal?

I checked my boots today and they're actually size 11.

I have a quick question. The board I ride now is like a 155. And I really like the feel of a smaller board. I went snowboarding yesterday and I tried my friends 160wide and I didn't like it much, I felt like it was too big. But since im 200lbs thats the board Im supposed to use. For now Im just riding down the mountain on my tiwn tip 155 board and really like it. So I would like to keep a twin tip shape because I want to get into park soon, and i know most people ride a smaller board for park. Im also trying to lose weight and i started running every other day, so I was just wondering if I would be ok with a 156 or 158?
