okay, ive seen some pretty bad posts, thats up there with some bad ones!

we need some stats, height, weight, boot size, if your still growing, what kinda riding your doing, where your doing it, possibly a budget, and lastly do some research on your own first and come back with a list of boards you like and we will help you from there bud!

Why do you like the forum manual? Because it looks cool and you know forum is a trusted name and it's on sale?

I'm honestly curious, because friends have done the same thing. They always seem to pick a forum, thats on sale, without knowing a thing....

you still haven't given us a whole lot.

Where do you ride?
Budget?
do you ride like all park or some park and the rest all mountain?

also that forum would be a no.

your looking at park decks that should be no bigger then 155 at the max

It's a lot more complicated than that...

But it sounds like you really don't care and just want something with a fancy name and a neat graphic. If you don't have the patience to read around here and do some research then go for it....

I would personally never recommend that board to anyone who has a passion for boarding.

Find a 2011 Flow Verve or same year K2 Raygun and some 2011 K2 Indy's and then don't skimp on boots. You should be able to spend $150-$200 on boots if you find that board and bindings.

Look for the 155 in the Era and either the 153 or 156 in the Raygun. Smaller for more park.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
