Unsure of board - need to decide soon!
I started snowboarding last year with lessons and picked it up pretty quick.
Now I am trying to buy a good board that I can get better on and one that is good for all-mountain riding. Right now I am deciding between the Gnu Carbon Credit, Burton TWC standard, and K2 Bridgade.
I am 5'10.5 at 150lbs, and one problem I am having with choosing is that at my local board shop they have the brigade and twc in good sizes for me (I think) 156 and 157cm, but I have heard good things about the carbon credit and they only have that in 162cm which, from what I have read, seems too big for me. The kid at the shop said it was a fine size but I'm not sure. Should I just order a carbon credit online and what size would be best? 156 or 159?.
Also I will probably be going back to the shop at least for boots and bindings, any recommendations?
