5150 is Jarden(K2)'s junk division.

Also, slap the monkey that told you to get a wide board AND a 5150 board at that!

always buy used for your gear...it just saves you money...also wide may be harder to use if you dont need it, i dunno how wide it is but ive seen boards that if your boots are under 11 then the board is wider then the boot, which would make you work more to use your edges less effectively..

its also a park board whereas you would prob want an all mt board...that is if im looking at the right one..

its 26cm wide and my boots are longer than the width of the board.. i'd like to try out the grinds and jumps and wat not so i heard i should choose freestyle boards? but i am not sure how to tell on a board if its freestyle or free riding...

i went on the site and it said it was freestyle, went on another link and it said it was freeride..so im really not sure..its prob all around. the board should be fine for your first board as well, just do some more research before your next one lol
