Question Any suggestion?

Hello there;

I am searching for some feedback on the Burton Clash 2012 (145 or 151) this would be my first board; any one used/tried it ? and is it a good board for a beginner?

Thanks Russu

I haven't used it but my friend has the 2012 Clash and he likes it a lot. I'd say he's an intermediate rider, and he told me it would be a good board to start out with. It seems like a pretty beginner-friendly board because of the twin flex and continuous rocker. Actually I almost bought that one over my current one.

151 could work also.
Depends on your preferences.

These are that kind of things, what you cannot ask through the forum.
Go test both of those lengths, make a selection after.

151 isn't too long, and 145 isn't too short.

Something else to keep in mind is that longer boards are usually more stable at higher speeds and probably better for powder if youre riding all mountain. And another equally important measurement is the board width. Make sure your shoe size and bindings will fit the board width. The 145 is a small/medium for bindings and the 151 is a medium. Any boot above size 10 is probably too big for medium bindings. Good luck with the board hunting.

Edit: I noticed someone commented about boot size in your other post as well. Since you wear a boot in the 7's and you're going to have your feet at an angle you'd probably be fine with both. It comes back to the whole personal preference thing again.
