Default Need help from forum on board

So i need a good board as my crappy liquid board is falling apart. I learned and now I want to move up. here are my specs:

i am 5'7" 180lbs and i wear salomon boots size 11. I also bought Salmon binders 2 years ago. I think they old school as I went snowboarding this year and the binders where thicker. Jacket etc not relevant. I am looking for all mountain board where i can do jumps here and there. Not looking to break the bank.about 450$$ max Don't know anything bout rockers, width etc.. Just need a good reliable board.

Any recommendations would be great.

I'm similar to you in height and weight and I really love my Ride DH2 156cm wide. I wear size 11 boots too. It's combo rocker and camber. Great for jumjps and all mountain too. I'm not a park guy but whenever I hit and crash off of boxes the board doesn't break.

thanks man i was checking out the size and it was recommended 170cm based on height/weight ?? 156cm might be a bit small?

170? who the hell recommended that?

156/7 would be fine for you.

To give you an idea, I am about 5'11", weigh about the same, and I wear a size 10.5 Nike Kaiju boot.

Personally, unless I am looking at a pow board, I don't even consider looking at anything over a 157 really.

Board size has to do with weight, height has nothing to do with it. High 150's should work fine for you.
