Looking to buy first board
Hello, im looking to buy my first snowboard. I've boarded about 5 times now and want to get my own equipment. I've looking for a good, relatively cheap all around board, and I've been eyeing the 2010 Sierra Crew. I weigh about 170-175 and wear 10.5 boots. Here are the specs between 2 possible sizes that would work for me from their site. With the one, I am close to the upper range on the weights listed. On the other, it is a wide board, and I'm not sure if width will take away performance in relation to my boot size. What would you recommend? How important is to be close to the middle of the weight range? Is this a max range, if I put on weight to be like 185-190, how would that impact it? On the other side, I've seen some places recommending 10.5 for wide width and others saying more like 12. How much does the width differences actually make a difference in this case? Also, can't say I'm 100% sold on this particular board if you have any other recommendations.
WEIGHT RANGE : 130-180 lbs. / 59-81 kg.
WAIST WIDTH : 249mm
WEIGHT RANGE : 150-200 lbs. / 68-91 kg.
WAIST WIDTH : 259mm
