Hopefully that is enough info for you guys to make a suggestion... thanks in advance for anybody who helps.

The companies are all personal choice...Everyone has their own opinions, so I leave you with this: Check out the price range around 300-375 so your getting something decent, and believe it or not you can dictate ability level of a board by price. Next I think a 156-158 length is good given your height and weight. The shoe size thing can play a role also as if you wear an eleven or bigger you might wanna look for a wide board but since your around 10.5 its not a worry. Happy shopping...
