I'd recommend buying a board around the sizes of 154-159. Of that list above, I suggest staying away from Lamar, 5150, LTD, and Sims. Those are companies more geared towards cheap intro products. Burton makes good boots, bindings, and boards. Salomon makes some good boards. Rossignol is a good board company for all mountain riding. Technine makes good boards, but they are more for the park also stay away from Technine bindings, they just aren't that great.
