Default Looking for a wide short freestyle board

I'm looking to get into snowboarding, and I'm having trouble find a board that fits me. I'm looking for a freestyle board probably 148-150 cm max since I'm on the short side (5'5), and is wide w/ a centered stance. I take a 9'5-10 shoe, so I'm thinking something at least 27 cm wide if not a little wider.

Can anyone give me some suggestions? I'd really appreciate it.

You don't need a wide board. You can probably use a midwide, but I think a regular would fit you well.
Also, if you're just looking to get into it, how do you know you want a freestyle board?

Have you tried boarding before?

Also, height isn't as much a factor apparently. What makes a bigger impact is your weight.

The others are more knowledgeable and will answer your remaining questions

yeah i dont see any reason you would need a wide board. any normal setup should work fine for you.

You don't need a wide board. You need to rent first. For all you know, you might end up liking freeriding ALOT more.
