What is your boot size?

but in terms of companies, forum has got some good boards out this year, but they are mostly park boards. Ride and salomon also put out some good boards. I would stay away from 5150 cause that stuff is lower quality meant to be sold at sporting good stores like big 5.

I don't know much about rossi boards, and burton boards are good boards, but since burton considers their stuff to be "luxury" the boards tend to be more expensive than other companies of equal quality.

I would go with a rocker board from Ride, forum, or salomon and you will end up with a good board.

Too Fast!

You won't be disappointed.

Seize the opportunity or wish that you had.

def start with a rocker, it will make your learning process much less painful. It may allow more bad habits during learning, however if you are serious about riding, you will turn out with riding technique that is just fine if you ride enough.

With around a size 12 (you will prob be smaller than that cause boots usualy are smaller than shoe size) i would prob go with a midwide board. something with around a 25cm waist width and above. But waist width is not the only thing to consider if you will have toe or heel drag. One must also consider your stance angles and width as well as the board sidecut and your bindings.

so i would start with finding the most comfy pair of boots and buying those, then, based on what size they are, get a board that will work for that boot size.

(boots are most important thing in snowboarding, don't skimp, just go with whatever pair is the most comfy)

Too Fast!

Agree. Definitely get your boots before your board, so you can figure out what size waist you need

Thanks
I started riding this year and just bought this years Neversummer SL. I rode it for the first time at Vail on Sunday and did not feel overwhelmed at all. I had been riding a friends older cambered burton and really liked the feel of the SL better. I turned a couple times and was positive that I was going to catch an edge.... but didn't with the SL. Never felt over my head with the board at any point during the day.
