i think that board is pretty stiff for a beginner. you want more of a park board, or all-mountain.

If you go with a Custom for a beginner board, go with the V-Rocker version. That way you catch less edges. You can always grow into the board so don't worry too much about that. You also don't want a complete noodle for your first board either so yea

My first board was a Custom ICS from last year 157 Wide. I love it and rock it all over the mountain, glades, groomers, and park. I haven't really gone through a lot of pow with it because I'm on the ice coast, but I'm sure it handles that as well. I bought an ICS vapor last year at the end of the season and it has a lot more stability on the ice, but they're both great boards. Next board will be more of a noodle or something like the joystick (has the v-rocker) so that I can play around more in the park... But I'd definitely recommend the Custom to anyone getting started.

You would be fine with a custom, however I would recommend something softer. A softer board will be easier to turn = easier to learn on. Perhaps a Dominant, Hero, Joystick, Flying V, Twin, or Love.
