Default New board need some help

I just got a new board from my wife. She said she got it at sportauthority. It's a burton board I think "Canyon 59" I can't find any info on this board. Any one used/seen this board before that can tell me bit more about it. I am what you can call hardly a begginer (begginer would be overstatment). Thanks for your help.

I don't think burton made the board this year, but at one point it pretty much was the wide version of the custom. It's a good board, I would just be worried that it would be a little too stiff for a beginner.

Whats your height and weight?

The burton bullet is one of burtons learn to ride boards, it's pretty soft and will make it pretty easy to learn on. The issue is if you get good fast and want more speed and harder carves you will need a new board.

Can you recomend different ones from different companies as well? I am looking for a good board for a begginer around 160W (for big footers). Thanks.
