First, there's a ton of awesome information on here, so thanks for that. I've been lurking for a little bit but this is my first post.
So, a little info on myself...
I'm about 5'9", 155-160 lbs, and my boot size is 10.
I've only gone snowboarding 3 times now, but am really getting the hang of it, and I KNOW it's now going to be a lifelong sport of mine.
I've been borrowing a friend's board, it's a Lamar Vision 151. I don't know too much about it, and neither does he.
I did buy some boots already, some Burton Ruler's...and I absolutely love them. They killed my feet for the first hour or so while they were breaking in, but since then, they've been extremely comfortable.
So, on to the board....I'm in no huge rush to get it, and I don't want something that's just "beginner friendly" that I'm going to quickly grow out of. I'm not opposed to a board that may be a little more difficult to ride for now, but that I'll eventually be happier with. I live in Cleveland, so 99% of my riding will be here or maybe New York at Peak n Peak or Holiday Valley...with maybe a trip or two to the west coast, but not in the near future (I'm nowhere close to ready for that).
So, anyway, any suggestions you can toss my way would be helpful, price isn't a HUGE issue, but for my first board that I'll probably beat the crap out of, I'd rather not spend TOO much, and I'm also not opposed to buying used.
Thanks a lot, and if there's any more info I need to provide, just let me know!
EDIT: Sorry, just checked the FAQ...I'm 27, so I shouldn't be getting any taller (Unfortunately) and hopefully won't be getting any fatter.
