first board

I rented a few times last year and I'm ready to buy myself a setup.

I like freeriding and carving. I'm 260lbs, 6'1 and 20 years old.
I didnt really have a set budget so pretty much any board I will consider.
Any suggestions would be cool. Thanks

a nice long burton fish.
but if you haven't decided if you want to hit park and such later on, then i suggest opting for a more versatile all mountain board.
a directional twin pheraps.

You're a big boy so you definitely need a big board. Ignore the previous poster I don't think he knows shit about what he talks about. Anyways if you want to free ride and charge hard check out the Never Summer Titan,Never summer heritage, K2 Podium, K2 Zepplin, Atomic Radon. Oh and whats your boot size?

Don't get a Burton Fish. They're great for powder, but suck for everything else.

My boot size is 12.5 or 13...I was looking at the burton bullet wide 160, but I'm open to any suggestions. I'll take a look at the boards you listed. Thanks bro

im 6' 250lbs size 12 boot and i got the burton mayhem 165 wide. i think a 160 might be short for you if you are into freeride and carving i'd go a minimum of 164

I looked at that never summer board and its pretty sick. I might see if I can get one from the expo coming up a portland expo center. I guess you can get really good deals. I rode a 161 last year and I thought it was fine, I really just want an all mountain board. Carve down a slope, just cruise down a trail, or hit a couple jumps here and there.

but maybe I should look for a slightly bigger board. 55nick15 how wide is your board? Do you ever get toe drag?

I would get the Rome Manual or Forum Recon over the Burton Bullet for beginner wide boards.
