Need help buying first board
Hey all, I literally just joined last night and only posted in the introductory forum, so I figured I'd move along to here.
I've gone boarding a couple of times now and I love it. I happen to go to school that's about 20 minutes away from a mountain, so I'd be able to go a couple of times a week. With that being said, I'm looking to get my first board.
Some stats about me:
Size 13 shoe
From what I understand, I'd need a wide board (26.5 cm?) and a board that's minimum 164 cm.? Also, I plan on sticking mainly with riding. I may one day venture into back-country riding, but that wouldn't be for a few years at least.
Can anybody offer some advice?
