Reason why I want to go 2013 is because I'd rather shop local. Gives some business to the local shop and can actually see the product in hand, whether they have older stuff is up to the business. I'd rather go in having some idea of boards I want to see rather then ask the rep what board he thinks I should get

so you're looking at like a 140-150 cm board depending on the type, anddd with size 7 feet you may also need a narrow... blehhhh idk man that's going to be tough especially if you don't want to use craigslist or anything like that.

and honestly, don't go 2013. it will be an enormous waste of money since you will most likely be buying brand new.

i think something like this would be perfect for you starting out...

http://reading.craigslist.org/for/3465187791.html

this is just an example of what you can find most likely on craigslist near you.

good luck!

Ok well if you decide on a board that doesn't come with bindings, he said he is also willing to sell the bindings separately for $70 including shipping. They're size M/L which fit mens boot sizes 6-10. Great mid-level bindings too.

I wouldn't recommend it. Yes, it would work for a beginner, but it will be softer/weaker/thinner/shorter and probably not look very good for a guy. It's definitely doable if you find an irresistable deal, but I would try to get a men's board if possible.

wrath has ridden some womens boards; women ride mens boards (shayboarder).

OP's stats are more in the range of that of a womens board (no offense, OP)...might open him up to more options?

So a girl weighing 125 pounds is different than a guy weighing 125 pounds?
It's that or a kids board.
