Thanks. I'm actually from Hawaii but go to Los Angeles a lot. There's two that are sorta close to where I go by.

What is preferred for the board arch/camber by how I ride? I think I also use medium bindings but is the board width pretty much standard unless I would need to look for a wide?

165lbs
5'6
size 9 boots
price range $100-200 with bindings

What size board should I be looking for? Cause it looks like I fall inbetween sizes since I'm heavy for my height. Is this a reasonable price range for a good board to last 3-4 few times a year? Thanks for any help.
