Oh, Ego. Your so funny sometime.

A decision to drive home drunk is a still a "valid" decision. Moreover, people do it *all the time* without any incident. However, that does not mean the choice to do so is a wise one.

Learn to walk before you can run. Your momma didn't put you in size nine shoes at the age of two, so why are you now trying to do something similar? You'll have a better foundation in place of HOW to ride on a board that is meant for learning. Besides, by the time your ability catches up to the board (even assuming does), your prolly gonna need to by a new one fron wear and tear. Hence, if you bught a short flexible board to learn on, you would also now have a good beater to use for jibbing and the such.

I completely disagree with the first paragraph and I suggest we leave it at that.

Regarding the second paragraph, if size nine shoes fit, get size 9 shoes. Basically you're saying that even though I can handle the size of the board I should take a lesser quality board just for learning? Makes no sense to me <_<

(1) The goal is to wear shoes that fits *and* are approprate for use and ability. Just becuase a size-3 ice skate fits the foot of a 2-year old, you dont use those ice skates to learn to walk with. The same holds true here.

(2) No one said anything about a lesser *quality* board. Don't confuse *function* with *quality*. They are wholly distinct. You should by the best *quality* board you can afford. However, you should also buy a board that is the most conducive for learning. You'll have a lot more fun, learn faster, and be a better rider at the end of the day.

(3) I started riding in 1987. I used to be an instructor. Have you even been through one season yet? My point is not to belittle (in)experience. Nothing would grow or be susutained without "noobies." My point is that if you ask for advice, and claim to be "open to any suggestions," then you might want to consider some deference to the experience of others who know a hell of lot more about boarding than you do. Just a thought.

Go for anything on the shorter side, relative to you (i.e chin and a little under), and go for FLEXIBLE (i.e. freestyle boards). The Burton Blunt comes to mind. Talk to a local shop, and they should be able to hook you up.
