I'm a n00b at this sport as well, but I can say that I agree with Morton to an extent. Before i bought my first board this year I went nuts tryign to research everything about it... and when you dont know much about boarding to begin with, you gotta look up the features, then decide if the which features are good THEN decide which will make it easy to learn on. *sigh*
I just decided to go to BoardZone (local shop) and shoot the sheit with the guy down stairs waxing boards for an hour (not the sales guy) who gave me a LOT of good advice. At the end of the day i got a board that fit my price, cuz the 'type' of board didnt really matter THAT much, what mattered was the dimensions and style of board. The only reason i bought a brand name was to get a better warranty and hopefully have it last longer.
I think people mostly start the "which board is right for me" threads just to try to get some insight as to what to look for, but really that question can be answered by reading a few FAQ's.
