How much board is too much?
I started riding last year, but could only go a handful of times due to poor conditions in Michigan. I used a really cheap Avalanche (didn't want to break the bank and discover I hated it).
Well I LOVED it! I'm heading to the French Alps for a couple months and am looking for a good but cheap beginner board. I am 6'0", 138lbs, 21 y/o, size 11 Men's boot, female interested in getting better and having fun doing some freeriding. I haven't found any women's boards over 158 so I have focused on men's boards. A guy at a local shop was trying to get me on a 161 Rome Machine. Is that too much board for me? Not to mention that it is made for more freestyle. Plus it is $390 and I would prefer to buy a lower end beginner board this year and upgrade next year.
Other boards I have looked at include:
162 Nitro Resistance (2006)
161 Forum Recon (2006)
161 Forum Recon (2007)
