theandersc I was just curious whether my feet would be too big?

Vinh I'm pretty new aswell, but from what I've read on here and have the dude from the shop help me say, i think you getting a 160 is too tall.

I'm 6.3(1.93m), weigh around 65 kg(im one skinny dude) and I've got a Burton Process 159.

Searching for a new board and I need help!

Hey there,

This is my first post on these forums, so I hope this my thread will provide the necessary info, if not feel free to ask.

Info about me:
Height: 5ft. 10 (1.80m)
Weight: 72kg
Age: 18
Boot size: 44 (US size: 10.5)
Budget: 500 USD

I've been snowboarding for approximately 8 weeks and have been riding a Burton Mayhem 2009 with mission bindings. Now I've started to a run a little bit in parks have gained and I've started to experiment with jumps, rails etc.
Since my board is quite used, I'm now on the quest for a new one. I want to have a board I can use for park, but also a board I can ride on the average slope.
Therefore my question is, since I'm a noob with all this snowboard-gear, what board would be a good choice for me? So far I've been looking on a K2 Parkstar board, or a Bataleon The Jam, but I don't really have any clue whatsoever when it comes to length of the board and etc.

Thanks in advance
/AC
