MrFire No clue how i did that but it must of been when i took a spill when toe side caught. I fell quite a few times but I would imagine the board would have taken the flex.

MrFire Well just an update. I came back from Whislter and it was a blast. The first day was brutal but it clicked eventually. I fell a lot trying to work on my "S" turns while going downhill. I ended up breaking my board the 2nd day out. I don't know how but I had to rent a board for the other two days. I ended up trying a 157 burton process. It was a sweet little board. Now I'm off to find a new board for my size. Thanks again guys

andrewdod Yes! Tuck your arms into your chest if you're Definately going down don't break your fall just let it happen.

ThisIsSnow ^ this. Starting off with a days' worth of lessons is a great idea, and make sure you hang in there for 3 days at least

and your instructor should teach you this, but learn to fall without using your wrists.

andrewdod I'm warning you now. Keep snowboarding for at least a week. Don't just quit after the first day. The first day is the hardest and it starts to click on the third or fourth day.

MrFire Thanks for the response guys!

Sorry I was typing too fast, I edited what kind of board i have. It's a Burton Custom Flying V 159. I plan on taking a full day class the first day and hopefully a 3day lift pass after. I'm glad this board suits my size, and hopefully it give me many years of use!

andrewdod Not a bad size for your weight I'm 6'3 225 and would get on a 159 no problem, perfect size park board for me. at your weight you should be golden on that set up.
