Default What board should I Get??

Hi Guys,

First time I have posted so please bear with me!!

I have been boarding a few times now and am looking to buy my first board, I am:


Novice
Want to ride both slopes and freestyle
5ft 9
160 lbs

I am looking for a board that I can progress with; I have looked at a few Ride boards (around 155/156), Decade, society and DH with a budget of about 250-300

Any help would much appreciated,

Tony

consult brand website for boards for your weight or height.
usually the board should be up to your chin or lips. Since your a begginer
get a medium flex freestyle board. soft flex is very forgiving on bumps and
hard flex is good when riding the edge of your board.
