look at thehouse for great deals
go with least a 158
wider is better because it is more stable
just ask us here what u have looked at

i agree with the house...it has some great deals on boards..but i think you should stick with a board that is a little bit smaller than a 158..since it would make it a lil bit harder to turn cuz it's longer..i was thinking in the 145-150 range...but ...and yea a wider board is more stable...what size boots are you gonna run? i would try to shoot for something that is the same size or a little bit bigger so you won't grab the edges to hard
