Daggs I'm a beginner, who was basically in the same spot as you and I went with the Proto and I love it. ^ From what I hear, the Cobra is a bit on the stiffer'll probably want to stick with something with a bit more flex as a beginner in general, but especially if you ever feel the urge to start riding some park.

j012d4n Wow, I completely overlooked the Cobra. I guess its similar to the Proto, but just higher performance specs. Cool thx

TBomb Riding out there, where you get lots of good snow, you might consider the NS Cobra/Cobra X (wide version) which is a good all mountain board if you're going to be seeing some pow.

Noob Snowboarder Qs.

So I just started snowboarding this season, and after 6 days of it, I've decided to purchase my first board. Obviously I don't want to waste money purchasing a beginners board, since I'll grow out of it in a few weeks. However, I do have several questions for the community whom are undoubtedly more knowledgeable on proper board selection than myself.

Just to help with the diagnosis, Im 5'11 & weigh about 170-172 lbs.
I live in Driggs, ID so we're talking boards well suited for Grand Targhee, Jackson & Teton Village. Atm, the snow is pretty packed down around here, but around feb/march we get absolutely dumped on. So I'm guessing an all mountain/powder board would be good yeah ?

At the moment I'm looking at 3 different boards. 1) The Never Summer Legacy. I'm a size 12 boot so the SL may be a bit small 2) The Never Summer Proto. 3) The Solamon Villian wide. Was told my proper board sizing was about 158W-162.

Any suggestions on these 3 boards, or any others for that matter would be awesome.
