If its the 154 your interested in check out snowboard asylum - 246

Snowboard asylum are the UK distributor so have the best sale prices.

Hope this helps
Thanks for that man, unfortunately I would be looking for the 160W in that board. From some reviews I read it seems to be a pretty impressive board.

Here in South Africa we are so limited, there's literally one shop that caters for boarders, they're mainly focused on park boards and either DC or Burton.

Not really sure that helps you when you are based in SA.

Just get the Basic, and have fun on it.
YAY!

Thank you! Need that bluntness!

Thanks everyone for your help

Finally do you think the 157 Basic would be ideal for my weight and style?

The new boards are:

Lobster Park - Size 153 - Cost 198
Battalion Whatever - Size 154 - Cost 212
Yes Greats - Size 156 - Cost 285
Yes Basic - Size 157 - Cost 216
Never Summer SL - Size 158 - Cost 311

I did try to look into the Flow Drifter, K2 Turbo Dream and Saloman Time Machine, I cannot find these boards anywhere here in the UK

The Bindings are Burton Cartel re:flex - Cost 150
If I was you and im not, I would pick between the two YES boards...having said that I am a huge tbt fan and would buy myself the Lobster (which I already own) It is super soft though and not as all around oriented as the two YES's. If you are going to ride almost exclusively indoors then the Lobster is probably the best bet. I am pretty sure TSA lets you demo them at the indoor slope (i demo'd like 20 boards there when I used to live in england) TBT is a very rider specific tech and many people hate it and many people love it, the YES is a much safer pick if you dont/cant demo.

Thanks for making my choice even harder! Ha

On a serious note thank for that response, will look into each board you mentioned!
you cant demo anymore at snozone in milton keynes? I think the store that lets you demo is The Snowboard Asylum and also there is another one right near that that lets you demo stuff. (its just not in the mall)
