Default Semi-noob needs help with new board

Hey guys, this past season was my first snowboarding experience, and I'm hooked. I started out on a pretty old used Burton, but still managed to tear it up. I'm already in the terrain park and want to focus on my freestyle skills while still being able to ride all mountain. Right now, I'm looking at a Burton Custom, but can't decide which length. I'm 5'11", wear a size 10 snowboard boot, and weigh 160-165 pounds. Which size would be suited for me? And if you have any other board suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks alot.

for park 155-156.

All mountain 157-159

Pow 159-161


for park look at the Rome graft, the board can also handle the rest of the mountain well.

Nice, I'm so stoked. Should be here on Wednesday.

What bindings do you run on your Agent? And how would you say it performs outside the park?

Me and S^R run our agents(mines a 158) on rome 390's, they work well outside the park, you'll be lucky to pick a pair up on sale in the L/XL sizing though.

like nzboardlife said, they are great bindings all over, very confy outside the park, never had an issue with them. They are a great buy even if you're not a park rat, they are also great in the glades, way better than any other binding I tried in the past.

nzboarlife I didn't know we had the same setup, rock on , oopppps I mean ride on


ohhh how does the agent perform outside the park, sorry I just woke up.

The board is an amazing board, very forgiving. It's can ride any type of condition you trow at it, ice, pow, groomers, glades and of course park. I am not a park rat, but I still enjoy a jump here and there. I mostly do glades, that's my true passion, you are going to love this board. It incredibly responsive and it slides nice and fast.

It's a hybrid strap. It can be used as a toe or cap. I use it as a cap strap and it works great. Love it for sure
