Default Short,stocky and small feet, what is a board for me?

I am a beginner intermediate short, heavy and have tiny feet. What boards should I be looking at? You want specifics? Height 5ft, Weight 150lbs and shoe size mens 3/Euro 35/women 5. Look forward to see what some of your ideas end up being and if they are inline with some of the boards I have been looking at recently ^^.

What type of riding do you plan to do with said board?

I didn't say that? Woops~ All mountain freeride, but lets take into account that stiffer boards won't work since I have puny feet. No park or fancy tricks for me ^^.

What does a stiff board have to do with your monkey feet?

{ Infinity-R } Never Summer Boards

This in a 151 or 154

I guess what I am wanting is an idea selection. Correct me if I am terribly wrong but what I am looking at are the Infinity and the pandora from never summer, the Gnu B-nice, Ride solace, compact, rapture and canvas, Arbor eden and cadence, rome vinyl, rossignal zena, salomon lotus. And after I decide on a certain board to try, well there is the difficult little thing of locating a place to demo them all.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the Pandora will likely be to soft for what you want to do...

Cadence will be too stiff most likely....

Ya I would def recommend demoing a bunch of sticks but if you don't have that luxury, you can't go wrong with the Infinity.

What's your local hill?

Well there's a demo day tomorrow (Sunday) at Breck if you want to try next years gear.

Never Summer, GNU, DC and a few other companies will be in attendance.

I would die in happiness if I could go, but I have a lesson scheduled for tomorrow up at WP x.x;; What does showcase snowboards carry in terms of snowboard selection?

(I think Its a toss up between the gnu b-nice and ns infinity-r)

Interesting.

I can't say a lot about it as I can snow ski barefoot because my feet are so large
