Naturesabre Ask ippy :P http://www.snowboardingforum.com/rid...er-2012-a.html

Only thing that doesn't really match up between that review^^^ and what you want would be he says it is a little lifeless. Still check the review out though; it's a good one

Maxxxpowers Would a 2012 161Ride Berzerker for $150 be a good deal? Would that be too advanced for me? I only ask because a friend of a friend says he'd sell it to me...

That sounds exactly what I'm looking for.

In a way. Size 10.5 (28.5 cm) would be a very atypical foot size for a height of 5'7 for a full grown adult. It does happen, but in the .01 percent range. Even 27.2/27.6 is a lot larger than average foot for your height. That is very good news, however, as it makes finding a board much easier. Guys that are 200+ and have smaller feet (8-8.5) have to make some compromises but you are looking good for a wide variety of mainstream decks.

My GF loves her Never Summer board also coming off Burton..
I missed the last demo day, I'll have to see if others are coming up. I've heard Neversummer thrown around a lot on these forums, they seem a bit out of my price range though, maybe I can find used...

Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

Maxxxpowers I hear ya, I'm definitely on the lower side of intermediate. I guess comfort with speed will come with time. I'll check out the Sherlock thanks for the suggestion!
