i think it's better for you to not get the easiest/slowest/smallest board because after going several more times believe me you are going to progress and you will out grow the board, and will want something better. the size of board you want will vary with what type of riding you do but regardless definitely the shorter a board is the easier it is to maneuver. i would suggest that before making an investment on a board you should go out ride more and get a feel of what type of riding you would like to get into. It sucks to drop money on something and end up regretting it because you now want something else. anyways, when in doubt it's best to get an all-mountain board because they are the most versatile. that's my 2 cents.
edit: sorry i dont read. forget about what i said about types of riding and al-mountain crap.
