Hey I'm brand new to snowboarding and dunno much about it. I really want to get a board but I'm not sure exactly what I want. I went snowboarding yesterday and I rented one and it was okay, but about midday my left leg was starting to hurt and I couldnt ride regular on it. Maybe the binding wasn't set right for me??
Anyways, I'm 5'9" 155 lb, and my shoe size is about a 9. So what kind of board should I be looking at?

What sort of riding are you planning on doing?
You should be looking at aound a 153-155. Shorter if you are riding hills, longer if you are riding mountains.
My list of beginner boards...
Never Summer Circuit R
Rome Artifact 85
Gnu CHB (now called Carbon Credit)

Usually yes...and typically shorter by a bit..
What board you get really depends on how much money you want to spend lol...
You can just assume your going to spend atleast 150-200 on a new pair of quality boots. And a minimum of 100 on bindings.
From there give us an idea of your budget and we can get you some board names..people can list Burton Vapors and Never Summer/Arbor boards all day long because they are great. But if your not spending 400-500 on a board alone then it does you no good
