New board question
I'm very new to snowboarding (just learning how to carve), and I just bought my first new board. I bought a 151 Ride Rapture. Here's my question... I'm 5'5", 110, size 7 foot, female (obviously?) and the guy at the local shop talked me into the 151 because it would be more stable. Stability is pretty darn important to me, as I caught a pretty bad edge a few years ago, and broke both bones in my arm. The old board I was riding was a 10 year old, hand me down Ride Control 149. It was heavy, and stiff, and I felt like I was trying to manhandle it. The more I keep perusing these forums, I'm wondering if the board I bought is a tad large? The only other size it comes in is a 147, which I wonder if that's too small. I haven't taken the board out of the plastic yet, as I just bought it 3 days ago. Please advise. Thanks!
