Thumbs up ** Recommend me a board! **

hey guys,

i'm looking for any advice regarding buying my first board,

i'll give you as much info as i can, and see what you come up with!


male

5'11"

160lbs

size 10 feet

experience : 3 weeks on holidays and snowdome

usually ride : snowdome and piste when abroad

ability level : i'd say sort of a 'better' beginner, i can link turns etc.


I ride a lot of snowdome here in the UK and the rental boards are terrible and i want something that i can really get used to and help me progress on. When i go snowboarding properly, i'm not into charging at crazy speeds at all (not that i safely could) i'm perfectly happy to cruise around, a bit of buttering and messing about etc etc.

the ideal board would be, something thats great for messing about at the 'dome on, but something that can also handle cruising the mountain.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

I did say i'm from the UK haha.

i'm not interested in buying knackered old boards lol, however, i do appreciate your comment that it might take a bit of a beating being my first board, i'm not really on a budget but wasn't going to go for something dead expensive either,

i was thinking about the Ride Agenda 156, any thoughts on this?
