Maybe look at https://www.offthepiste.com/ for when you are planning next year. It's horrible taking a long coach to France but it can make it a bit more affordable.

Also assumed you may have joined http://www.snowboardclub.co.uk/ which gets you discount at Snozone and could get you 10%+ off your board depending where you buy it.
Thanks for the help dude! Didn't know about that, gonna look at it.

Last thing I was looking at the Rome garage rocker which seems to be perfect, any opinions?

Tourn Ok, I've been looking at the dc focus as my final option seems good overall, 157cm length 25.1 width, sounds good?

Naturesabre no need for a wide board. I wear twelves(US) and haven't needed a wide(I ride either duck or +18/+9)

Just a thought as to whether it might be better to wait until you know what you like to do out on the mountain before you buy a board so you don't have to buy another in a years time.

As for an actual board I'm currently looking to buy my own now after renting both times I've been abroad so can't help there.
Mountain riding is going to be very rare for me, we don't have enough money and next year is only a possibility.

On another note what about width? I'm a size 10-11 what width do I need?

Riley212 pretty much any of those boards will work. but i would get the dc focus, the camber shape will be the most forgiving for learning.

Choosing a beginner board

Hello!
I recently started snowboarding and I love it, my birthday is coming up soon and I've saved some money so I've decided to buy a board my budget is 250-300 (not including bindings), I have found a few boards in my budget that seem somewhat suitable, I will list them below.

I am 14 (nearly 15)
6 foot
9 stone (126lb)
Size 10-10.5 shoe

At the moment I only ride at the snozone in Milton Keynes, it has a small park mostly consisting of rails and a couple of kickers, then a slope which isn't deep or powdery (is that the right word?) well whatever, here's a picture:



The boards I have been looking at are the

-burton ration - 260
-DC MLF -240
-DC PBj - 160
-DC tone
-DC focus

At so on, next year I might be going to a mountain in France or whatever so yeah,

Also do I need a wide board?

On another note I want to get better at rails e.g.

Any help will be much appreciated, thanks!
