burton air or royale

Hey people...this is my first post and i was wondering if i could get some help...I started riding last year and i had purchased a ride kink...I soon discovered that chillin in the park and hitting up jibbs wasnt wat i wanted to do all day...So now i know that an All-Mountain snowboard is more for me...I was looking at the burton air and the royale..And they both seem to look good for what i want..I am a size 10 boot and i dont know if my foot is to small for the royale or not...If my foots big enough for the royale tell me what you think is better(if not tell me what you think about the air)...The royale or the air...Please keep in mind im a beginner/intermeiate but i am a great athlete so i learn and adjust very quickly...

The Royale was highly recommended to me by a few experts as a great all around board for intermediates wanting to take it a step up. The Air is more freestyle oriented and if thats your style you may find a Custom for a little more $. The Royale seems to be one of the best value for money all mountain boards out there.

I'd say a 154, with a size 10boot youd want around 250 width and the 154 as 252 so that should be sweet, and with your weight the 154 would definatly be better....158 would be a little on the big side id say, unless your just gonna be chargin insane-o powder all day.

according the burton website youd be right in the middle of the weight range for the 154, and at the absolute bottom for the 158.
