Default My First Board?

I went riding for the second time this year and decided that I want to buy my own snowboard instead of renting. This is my second year riding but only for about 4-5 days each year so I'm ok but not going too fast. I like doing 180's but also like going pretty fast.

I ride longboard skateboard and i mostly do standup sliding and bombing hills. So I pretty much wanna do the same thing on the snow. I love symmetrical boards so im leaning towards one. Can anyone reccommend some boards for me that arent over $300?

Weight:185-190
Height: 5'11
Boot Size:13

Yea either the 157 or 160 Wide will do you good...

You cant go any smaller though size 13's even on the 160 has some overhang...

hey thanks for the response guys. My neighbor is selling me a salomon 165 definition with straps and boots for $225. The edges are rusted and the bottom needs to be repaired. Would this be a good buy? the owner assures me its an awesome all mountain board that is great on powder

what do you think?

and the boots are size 12 and fit me just fine
so i guess i was wrong on the original boot size
