Default Reverse Camber Board

I'm new to snowboarding and I was wondering what the best Reverse camber board would be for Less than 500? I really want to be able to do flatland 180's and such. I want a board thats flexible and can handle rails and jumps. My stats are 5'10 and 165 Lbs.

less then $500 for board or for board/boots/bindings?
flatland 180's can be done on a 8 year old rental board with no pop in it. reverse camber is not going to make a difference.

any board can do a flat land 180...but to do a flat land air 180 (no ramp), you want a board with "pop" for the highest ollies possible. From what I've read, positive camber boards inherently have the most pop.

Get a highly flexible, regular cambered board and you'll be doing all kinds of flat land tricks and airs in no time. Good thing is, these "older tech" boards can be found way under $200...if it's "new old stock", don't be afraid to buy one a few of years old.

If I weigh 165 and I am 5'10, what size board should I get. I look on online size charts and it says 155-159cm. But does it really matter what size board it is?

yes, size is very important, i'd say go with a 154-156 if you plan on staying in the park.

if you go reverse camber you could go from a 152-156. but since you wanna do flatland 180's you probably want a board with camber

check out the capita stairmaster, forum manual and academy propaganda. those three are really solid park decks
my choice would be a 152 stairmaster and i weigh about 175 so you could easily rock a 152 too if you stick to park
