What Snowboard should I get?

Hey guys,

I'm thinking about buying a Snowboard. Problem: I'm 6'2" and my Boot Size would be at least 13. However, I'm only 135 pounds (yeah, I am skinny ). It would be nice if you can suggest some Snowboard that would be good for my weight/shoe size. I've snowboarded for 4 years (1 week a year) and would like to start practicing tricks and stuff. It would also be nice if the snowboard doesn't cost too much, but feel free to suggest what you think would match to me.

Thanks!

Hey guys, would you go long and quite soft to get his stance wider, or stay true to his weight with a normal flex? I'm curious about this. Obviously he needs a wide board.

Be nice to your Hacker. We make magic happen.

If you're worried about that being too small it also comes in a 155w.

Mabye also check out the 153w Kink.

Custom Flying V

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide between the 154 and 156 Custom Flying V. I have a 57 Arbor Coda for the all-mtn more powdery day. I want another board with a little more flex and playfulness that I can learn some spins and booters on. I usually ride a 56 as my quiver board and generally can't complain. I'm thinking smaller could be fun, but would it be stable enough goin fast?

I need advice quick!!

Thanks guys.
