I'm a size 12-13 US so the wide boards are my only option. I found this package with the binding and boots included used once with the board for a very good price so that's why I have been tempted into buying the shorter board, if you guys have any more tips I would love your help.

Yeah but would the longer board be redundant after a few months of solid boarding? Because I wasnt planning on having to upgrade the board halfway through? Is there a size that is long enough to start to learn on and also give me the versatility to do tricks and use it in a park environment once I improved?

Ps I looked on the weight on evo.com for the board and they said the board is good to 180lbs will that be a a major problem if I'm too heavy for that recommendation?

First Snowboard sizing... please help!!

Hey guys I'm currently looking at a brand new burton custom Flying V online and it's size is 155W. I am 185cm and 90kgs or 200 pounds which ever way you look at it. I was wondering if the 155 would be too short of a board for what I need and my level of riding.

I have never ridden a snow board before but I am working a whole season at lake Louise in 2014/15 so I would improve quickly. I know that the smaller board are traditionally used in the park and are a lot easier to manuver but just wondering if it would be too short for me when I was starting out to learn??

Thanks guys id love some help!!
