Can I be in both categories?

Note: I might not say "strictly," but the proprietary aspect is far too great a part of it for my taste.

I think I am settled on the Gnu Riders Choice. I believe it is almost identical to the Lib Tech TRS, but has a sintered base instead of an extruded base. I really think the Magne-traction will work best for me here in Ohio.

Next thing I need to consider is board size. I was told I could get anywhere from 154.5 - 157.5 - 161.5. I'm leaning towards the 157.5 because I am 6' and 180lbs. Would the 154.5 make much sense?

Just bought a 157.5 Riders Choice and im 5'10'' 180 lbs and size 10 boots. I've been freeriding a fair amount and i really like to spend time in the park and found this size is perfect for me.

Hey fellas,

I finally made a purchase. I was going to wait until the end of the season, but was able to get a great deal on a k2 raygun. I know it's not top of the line, but I'm going to invest in some great bindings and boots with the extra case. I'll hopefully progress on this for the next couple of years, and then jump into a more advanced board.

Thanks for all of the help. This is such a great place to get first hand info.
