Searching for a new board and I need help!
 
Hey there,

This is my first post on these forums, so I hope this my thread will provide the necessary info, if not feel free to ask.

Info about me:
Height: 5ft. 10 (1.80m)
Weight: 72kg
Age: 18
Boot size: 44 (US size: 10.5)
Budget: 500 USD

I've been snowboarding for approximately 8 weeks and have been riding a Burton Mayhem 2009 with mission bindings. Now I've started to a run a little bit in parks have gained and I've started to experiment with jumps, rails etc.
Since my board is quite used, I'm now on the quest for a new one. I want to have a board I can use for park, but also a board I can ride on the average slope.
Therefore my question is, since I'm a noob with all this snowboard-gear, what board would be a good choice for me? So far I've been looking on a K2 Parkstar board, or a Bataleon The Jam, but I don't really have any clue whatsoever when it comes to length of the board and etc.

Thanks in advance

Thanks, do you think a size 160 would be approriate for me?

I'm pretty new aswell, but from what I've read on here and have the dude from the shop help me say, i think you getting a 160 is too tall.

I'm 6.3(1.93m), weigh around 65 kg(im one skinny dude) and I've got a Burton Process 159.

I was just curious whether my feet would be too big?
