Default Opinions wanted

So wanting a new board i have been searching around,
i used this
Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator
and got 149 cm for length and 235 for waist.
It's been really hard to find these dimensions and yet i have found this board
K2 WWW Snowboard from Dogfunk.com
Does this seem like a solid board for a beginner? (the dimensions are also a little different but i dont know how much of a difference it will make)
I am planning to start hitting more jumps but will this be a board i can use for normal mountain riding as well as hitting jumps and beginning on the terrain park?

Thanks in advance =)

What's your weight and boot size. Most calculators suck....

The WWW is a really soft board... Not necessarily a horrible beginner stick, but you will be limited on what you can do with it. A super soft board with reverse camber makes it easy to learn how to ride, but it has limitations on where you can take it.

How big is your budget for a board?

Dont be offended, but are you a female?

Young or growing still by chance? These can play a role if you want to get something that's going to last a while.

A WWW is kinda of a throw away board....

I would say you should go with something around a 152 length. Your going to gain a little bit of weight I'm sure. And your boot size just means you don't have to worry about board width, but the narrower the better. Getting a board this short though, you should be fine.

I would recommend a Capita Indoor Survival FK in a 152. Make sure it's the FK though... I wouldn't go much larger then the 152.

Another recommendation would be a Ride Machete or some other flat cambered style board.

Just stay as close to a 152 as possible.

Oh and make sure you take your time buying boots and bindings. Boots and bindings are the single most important items in your arsenal, so don't pinch pennies in that department.

Your best bet would be to buy a used board off of craigslist. Once you get better drop some coin on a better board.

I would put more $$$ on good boots and good bindings for a beginner, but since you are growing that doesn't make much sense.

I'm leaning towards buying a new stick... It's the off season so boards are on sale, and the full warranty applies from date of purchase. So the board would likely be warrantied until the 2012 season. And for someone that's just starting, that warranty is gonna be nice.
