Haha, I snowboarded with such old board, that I think, that this board will be perfect for me

Between park, trees, and people on the lift the sidewalls are a disaster.

If you plan on boarding only a few days out of each season, it is probably fine. But if you end up really enjoying boarding, you will want to replace the Merc pretty early on.

BurtonAvenger Awesome go to a shop and not buy something tying up their time and taking away from their sales staff then buy online. I hope you get testicular cancer and die.

I'm from Lithuania, so sorry for my poor english.

Thank You
First off I agree with the 2nd poster, you don't want to buy shoes/boots on the internet without going to a store and trying on that exact model. I was going to buy some DC Judge boots online and I was going to buy a 10.5 or 11, but I went to a store and a 10.5 was huge, I would have to go down to a 10.

But back on track... I had the Flow Merc from 2008/09 season (the black w/ blue base), I bought it in the beginning of the 2009/10 season on sale at my local mountain. This was basically my first full season riding, so I needed a decent board for a beginner, this board was great in that aspect. It held an edge nicely, flexed pretty decent, rode jumps really good, and did rails decently good (I suck at rails). It was overall an awesome board for a beginner. The only reason I wanted to get rid of the board was it was more all-mountain oriented, I wanted a board that was almost completely park oriented, which I did... I traded that board for a NeverSummer SLr... the kid was a skier who wanted to get into snowboarding also...

Nito pretty much summed it up, don't buy boots online. Try all and buy the one that fits your foot best. Make sure your heel is not lifting up when you stand on your toes, and there shouldn't be any pain/pressure points. You should also feel your toe touching the boot a little when standing up, but not so much when you crouch or do a hockey stance.
I'm sure this board is a good starter board for your use, allthough I haven't tried it. Just get a board that suits your size.

Don't mind BurtonAvenger. To me it seems like he's just plain rude to you because you not from the USA
