Back on topic, Forum Recon would be a good beginner board.
I didn't know you're in Rochester...The store is out in Pittsford Plaza, by the Wegmans...well, on the other side of the plaza. The one closer to Wegmans is Snow Ski & Board, and they just closed up till next season...50% off there, was a pretty good sale...

I'm not sure if they still have the CHBs, I got my RC MTX a few weeks ago there and it was labeled a CHB...so I got it for 150. Anyways, they had 2 MTX ones and 1 non-mtx one if I remember correctly last time I was there.

And I say 156, but 158 will work just as well.

cyokom Ok, I am over thinking this but someone please help me make my decision!!!

I am looking at the Forum Recon 158 (251 waist) or the 156 Wide (257 waist)


I am 5' 10" 175lbs size 11 SHOE

Thanks for all the help

livelyjay Depends on your foot size and the angles you set your bindings. General rule is boot size 11 is the max on a non-wide board, but some other members will argue that. I have a size 10 boot on a 252 and it's fine. My 10.5 boots fit fine on the 252 as well.

cyokom Is there any disadvantage to a wider board for a beginner to intermediate? I look to be right on the cuff of needing a wider board. 251 to 257 waist.

I know my local EMS has Gnu CHBs for $150 - both MTX and regular.

Looking for a good beginner board. I found this board for $150 and that's about all I can afford. Any thoughts on this board would be great.

Thanks for the help.
