Is this the right set for me?

Ill basically do only freeride, all mountain. No park... So i was looking for my first snowboard and here is what I found. I like the ride crush 2010 with the Ride EX. I am 6.0 feet and wear number 12. Should I get a wide snowboard or the normal is ok? So what do you think? Some suggestions of other sets are rly appreciated. Ty in advance.

You need a wide board. As far as what size? I'll need your weight. Your height does not matter when it comes to sizing unless you are 7' tall and 100lbs.

You can ride anything in this range:

155-163cm all in wide.

I would personally suggest you go for a 156 or 157 wide for more control. You can go bigger if you ride a lot of powder.

As for a board, you will want to look for a Directional Twin.

Rossignol One Mag Snowboard 2010

Don't know your budget, but the Rossignol One Mag is an awesome all-mountain board. This is my favorite Rossi board.

You can also look for the Ride Control which is another good board.

not to jack the thread, but i am in the same situation as the op, 6ft with 180lbs, but only size 10.5 burton hail,
is there any other alternatives than the two above? and can you recommend a new set of bindings as well?

Thanks

if your interest is carving up the mountain i would suggest a little longer. my boot is a 12 and i ride a 158 and its not a wide. i say look 157-159 and pay attention to the waist width. you want something 25cm (250mm) or wider. your boot profile will work for or against you.

and i agree, directional twin.
also traditional camber.


weipim - i like burtons. cartels are pretty popular. ive tried flows and like them, though they take a lot of fine tuning but are nice if your runs are short. i want to try some rosis as well.

Burton sucks. Get NS, Rome, Capita, Smokin, Omatic, or any other number of good and correctly priced boards.

If you want a Burton for less, get a Forum. Or if you don't care about the name, get a Sierra Crew.
