Want to order tonight!! Help me pick!!

I've been researching and researching but as you all know there is an overwhelming amount of information out there! This is my first board. I'm a beginner, but have been snowboarding a few times. I'm a decent wake boarder if that helps with your opinions. I'd like to have it home by the end of the week!!!

I'm 6'0'' 190lbs.

I want an all mountain board and will be on the east coast.

I would like to stay within a realistic budget for a first time buyer, but I want something that will last me a few seasons and thats not a POS. I think I have narrowed it down to the following boards. I've done a lot of research and this is what I came up with (BUDGET IN MIND!!) Give me some help please.


Ride Antic (09 I think)
Save on Ride Antic Snowboard 160 - Mens Snowboard Snowboarding Gear Equipment

Sierra Team Snowboard 2010
Sierra Team - Snowboards Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

Rome Crail

Ride Control

Never Summer Legacy
Never Summer Legacy Snowboard 2010 - Mens - ParagonSports.com

Rome Agent (2009)

As far as bindings go, I just need a decent beginner all mountain binding. Recommendations are welcome!!!

I need to pick up boots at a local shop for size and comfort so I dont need immediate help with boots.

Thanks!!!

i would go with the Ride or the Never Summer. people on here seem to be saying good things about the legacy, but Ride makes an excellent board, never heard any complaints about them. Rome boards are eh, they dont hold up too long alot of park rats like to ride them from what i've seen at my local spot Mountain creek, and they dont hold up for them. Ride is a great brand and you cant really go wrong with them theyve had a good reputation for years. Also look into some forums like the youngblood if you want a good board for everything they're about $400

I have the 09 NS Legacy-R and love it! If you search the forum you will see that most agree NS is a solid company. My vote would be for the legacy for a solid all-mountain board but keep in mind, you could also look at the SL-R which is similiar to the legacy but standard width vs. the legacy being mid-wide. Not sure your boot size?
