Arrow 1st board, help yo

and boots and bindings... also important... But neway this is my first season snowboarding, and I've been progressing pretty good. I started around christmas, and can now bomb most blacks, not suck on moguls, and hit powdery glades =). In the park I love catching as much air as possible (who doesnt like to fly?) and hitting most rails (anything with less than 3 kinks). I can do decent on a funbox (lol), like solid-boardslide-w/out-falling good (stop laughing jeez). oh and IMPORTANT: I am 14 and have size 12 feet, and I am about 5'9" and 125lbs. Note the size 12 feet especially, I probably need something midwide, tho angled bindings work good. But, I want a board that I can ride for a few years to come,sooo... Yeah. don' wan get too fat 4 it, footwise.


right now, off a regular sized kicker I can do...
180s, methods, mutes and indys (indies?)

I wanna learn all the trickier stuff, but the season is now over...

Hey, yo! 7 of your 8 posts are in this thread and nobody else has posted in it. That has got to be a record! Try searching next time.

Try this one. It's from earlier today.

I agree with NickNorth11 there many threads about wide boards, just search.

Personally I don't know to much about wide boards, so you are going to have to wait till other members add to this thread. The only board I can comment on is the Rome slash, but I am not sure you want to go that large I think the shortest they make it is in a 156

Welcome to the Forum.

Ouch! Size 12 feet at 125lbs. You are going to have a hard time finding a wide or mid-wide and is short enough for you. At your age with those size feet you may have a big growth spurt coming...you may want to consider getting a board that is a little too big for you if you plan to ride if for a few years.

Are you looking for a pure park board like the Burton Dom?

Lol, sorry for the nooby multi - posts. I just weighed myself again recently and am more like 130 lbs... Yeah... Not much of a change. But while I am looking for a mostly park board, something that can hit powder, glades, and moguls would be great too. I was looking at the K2 After Black, I kinda gave up on this thread and made a new one centered around the K2AB. It is mostly a park board too, but even the burton Dom could handle most stuff (glades, moguls and powder) pretty well. Course, thats just comparing it to the burton Cruzer .

Maybe you could wait till October or so, to see if you will grow a bit. But then again you might be able to get a better deal now than at the beginning of the season.
