I'll edit this once i get specs thanks.

120 is a decent price for a first board. Hard to pass up at that price, since you are just starting out with riding. I'd say learn on that board then upgrade to another setup next year.

Fuck that stupid ass chart. A boards length is determined by your weight not your height.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!
