Another board size question - 6'4 200lbs
I've searched and read, but i'm still not totally sure about what size board to get. I've only rented boards before in the 158-160cm length (and i don't think very wide) and i'm now looking to buy my first board.
I'm 6'4, 200lbs, and wear a size 14 Burton boot. So i know i need a wide board, but what length? From what i've read 160 seems a little short for me? But thats what i've ridden so far and they seemed fine to me. What will a longer board do for me? Should i shoot for the 162-164cm range?
I want an "all mountain" do all type board. I'm mostly goofy footed, but i occasionally ride switch for a bit, too. no tricks or anything, just cruising down mountains in the northeast.
What brands/models are recommended for my size and for a beginner price range? I'm mostly looking used so models a couple years old are good, too. I just can't get my head around all these options.
