I'm around 5'11, 85kg's and size 11 feet.. budget around $350aus. I've only been snowboarding once and absolutely loved it so thought i may as well invest in some gear if i'll be going a few times this year. im still in the process of learning tho but tend to pick things up fairly quickly.. but dont need a full pro board or anything like that.. just something to get me started and last me a few years as i improve.
I found out that the size i need is around a 158 or 159. I've read some other threads and found a fair few ppl recommend the Rome boards for beginners. Are there any other boards that u guys would suggest? is the K2 Believer any good? also.. are there any good sites to find good deals?
Look into Atomic Cold smoke or Radon, Rome Agent, Forum, Gnu, Lib tech, Ride and Burton. there are many good boards in those brands. Do a search there are plenty of posts about this brands in the forum.
