Default new rider is this a good size/fit/board?

Rossignol Sultan 155cm Mens Snowboard + Morrow Invasion Bindings + Boots | eBay

I been snowboarding maybe 4 times now, I LOVE IT!

I want a board I can learn on that can take a beating and will be an all mountain board with hopes of future park and freestyle riding

would this board be sufficeint for my needs? I weigh ~165 lbs and I am 5'10"

Thanks a bunch I know you get similar threads prob everyday :/ just dont wanna spend the money and be let down or wish I would got something different

BTW my budget is under 400 so let me know if you have any other suggestions that would be better at or below that price range

its the right size but this will be better in the long run

Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard + Shift Bindings 2011 | evo outlet

the board and bindings are much better quality.

then go to a store and find boots that fit properly, dont order them off the internet.

I wouldn't skimp out on boots. There is seriously nothing that ruins your day faster than feet that hurt. Go try on boots and find ones that fit you. If you must order online, order from dogfunk/REI/altrec (places that have lifetime guarantees) so you can try the boots on and see if they work for you on the mountain. Bindings and boards can be purchased used with the remaining budget.

This is my first season and I picked up the rome garage rocker. I got the bindings separate but I like the board so far. It is supppppper easy to maneuver and initiate turns. It is pretty playful too. So far I have loved learning on it! I am a noob and went up on the mountain 6 times with the factory wax so last time I went it felt like crap. I just waxed it so hopefully this weekend it will feel a lot better! I recommend this board for learning!

FYI, you shouldn't ride ONCE on factory wax job. And even on a good waxing, 6 rides is pushing it - at least if you can do you own waxing and don't need to pay for shop tuning.
