|DevilWithin||Also, you do realize that the board you were looking at is a wide. What size feet do you have? A wide will make it harder to initiate turns if you don't need it.|

|andrewdod||look in the 158-162 range. youll be able to press those sizes pretty well for your weight. I would say a 155 would be the shortest you could go for a park board... you will be better off learning on something a little bigger because i assume youll be all over the mountain when youre first learning and in your first year trying to figure out your style.|

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!!
