First, but not newbie board.
Hey all, I'm new here, and I've been skiing since I was 3. I took up snowboarding 4 years ago, and can rock (east-coast) double black diamonds on a rental board, but I'm starting to get sick of the 40$ per day price. I normally ride more downhill than park, but i do like hitting the park occasionally. Me: Male, 17, 6' tall, 11 shoes, 180 lbs.
I want to get my first board, but the default newb boards seem like a step back. There's a buy one get one free sale at my local freestyle, or 40% off a single item, so i can get the boots/bindings for the price of one, and a board for 40% off. I was thinking about the Burton Bullet or Operator wide, since my boots are 11's... Just wondering if anyone could give me some advice, 'cuz I've heard good and bad about both of these.
