also as far as online retailers has anyone heard of REI or know if they are reliable?
REI is a top notch spot. They are a chain, but sort of a collective or something. Lifetime returns.

Why don't you check out Wiredsports' site. If you're going to order online, might as well go to a place with better selection. REI"s selection is just ok.

Got it. The 156 will be a great all mountain choice. I would not be surprised if others suggeted the 153 for you as well. If your leanings were more towards park/freestyle then I would have suggested that size.

STOKED!

Wiredsport Hi,

The Carbon Credit has a a lot of fans and some great tech.

Based on weight you will want the 156 or 156 Wide but please post your foot size as well so we can help you get the perfect setup.

What's a Rei?

joelseph Yeah I should have mentioned that the drift didn't to to great on ice. The sidecut of the board is Salomon's "Equalizer" tech... which pretty much turns the sidecut into three straight cuts that come together where a normal board would start to curve. Living in CO, i only ran into icy patches while night riding. Probably not the best board for your conditions.

joelseph Ill speak from experience here. I rode a 154 Salomon Drift Rocker my first season, and absolutely loved it. I was able to jib, butter, and do 3's at the end of the season. However I was an employee of the mountain so I got 100+ days in. If you get the drift, you will have no regrets. I'm 5'8" and 140 lbs and the 154cm was perfect for my all mountain needs.

Edit ---

Only thing i did not like about the drift were the graphics lol. Kind of lame. But whatevs. I had the black topsheet (i think there is a purple also).

Nivek None of those are great options. You'll progress out of the Burton and K2 by the end of the year and despite what your apparent ass hat of a shop kid told you that Carbon Credit is too big.

Be looking for something 153-156. See if they've got a K2 Raygun, Flow Era, Flow Drifter, or Salomon Drift Rocker.
