What kind of board should I be looking for?
Now that I have a couple of sites to look at for reviews (include this great forum), some pointers on the type/size of board to look for would be great.
I'm new to this, having only been to Keystone maybe 6 times. I can handle greens and easy blues without a problem, but steeper blues are giving me a little bit of a hard time.
I'm 6' and weigh 190#. I won't be doing anything in the park, just downhill on the mountain.
So far I've been using boards sized around 160 from the rental place, but their stuff is crap and I want to start getting my own stuff.
Is 160 long enough for someone of my size and weight?
I wasn't planning on getting a 'wide' board, normally wearing size 10s, but would it hurt?
