snowboard size and brand advice
I started snowboarding this season and have been doing pretty well. Renting every time I go is getting expensive and seems like a waste, so I was looking to buy a board. I needed advice on sizing/what board you guys would recommend. I have looked specifically at the rossignol scope, sierra team snowboard (same as flow team?) and flow merc. I would be open to any boards however.
Boot size: 8.5-9/Foot size: 25.4 cm
I will be doing most of my riding here in Western PA/New York areas, if that helps. Won't be hitting the park much, if at all.
I know that size can vary depending on the board itself and what kind of riding you are going to do. When I went to the local shop, I was told 153 would be too long in any board, so that confused me a bit. I was originally looking at the sierra team snowboard (with the flow quattro bindings for $349) but shied away after the local shop worker told me 153 would be too big. Is there a range I should be looking at, like 151-153? Any board recommendations? Thanks in advance!
