Beginner need your help to buy 1st board.

Hi all, I living in Hong Kong, and no any snow here, so I have to practice snowboarding in a indoor artificial place with a very hard surface, it's ice not snow. And I'll go to other country 1 to 2 time every year, mostly Japan. I am look for a All Mountain Freestyle board to improve my carve and will try to learn some tricks and jumps. Any advice?

K2 Raygun is well liked around here by beginners and advanced riders. I haven't ridden one myself but shoot. Go for it. Just buy it.

Thx for your reply. But its shortest size is 150, so I'm wandering is it too long for me, any idea?

Any one can shared the RayGun on the very hard pack condition? Can the board hold the ice?
And I heard that its flat camber had a shorter edge, what size should I get?
