As OP said, you should include your weight as it is a (the) major factor in determining board size, but also your shoe size and what you mainly intend to use the board for, such as freestyle, freeride, all mountain. From what you've said it sounds like you're after an all-round beginner-intermediate board, but do you intend to hit the park a bit this year or anything like that?
