ListenUp Alright so before you try anything, practice a lot of switch riding. Which means since your be riding switch a lot, especially off of jumps or rails, so you should get a twin board. Now give me some stats. How much do you weigh? How tall are you (this doesn't matter as much as weight but its still good for me to make a good recommendation)? Are you goofy or regular? Are you seriously only going to ride park or will you try some pow?

Cody011395 well thank you that helps a lot i always thought the type of board was everything and made the difference night and day. i guess ill just get an all mountain board and start thanks to everyone!

Patrick1229 You can learn on any snowboard. My bro is a park rat, regularly hits 360, 540, grabs, boxes and rails. He won his board at a bar. Its a piece of crap. Yet he doesnt let that slow him down...

I feel like people put too much emphasis on the "right kind of board" and need to just get out there.

Patrick1229 OP, sounds like your saying you want a park board, but when you describe your preferred board, your actually describing a all mountain type board.

That said, an Academy propa camba is the closest thing to what your looking for. Go for it in 150

All the threads first.


Not being mean.
Yes, OP, nothing ever changes from year to year in snowboarding. We're sure a thread from 2008 will give you all the info you need. Google is your friend....

Cody011395 im like 5'9 give or take. i dont really know what a good size is. i ride a 151 because that's what the rental shop says i should ride. but what do you guys think? and i dont really like the feel of rockers i just feel like im not in control. i like the edge control you get with camber. i really want a board that will help me learn tricks off jumps like 360s and grabs. i also like a bit more flex.
