Exclamation Quick question!

OK,

So I've skateboarded and surfed for a while and I have two trips planned with about four days of mountain, NC and most of it in Colorado. I'm trying to get a board that will last me for a bit and look decent, I like this: http://www.amazon.com/Rossignol-Dist...istrict+amptek

I don't know their reputation but I want to avoid getting the K-Mart "skateboard" of the snowboard world instead of getting a real snowboard. It makes a difference in skateboarding, the bearings are terrible, not real maple or 7 ply etc etc.

But I don't want to break the bank either and I'm trying to get it by Friday which brings in limitations of money.

I would like to ride terrain when possible and fill the rest with all around mountain time. Will this work out well, good board etc. not missing tons of tech. items from a $50 more board or something?

Hopefully this makes sense, not trying to get something that is the best because it would be wasted since I'm not at such a level, but I want something that isn't going to hinder me either. I've checked for my weight (190lb) and 10.5/11" foot that this is the appropriate size (159). Again will this board make me happy and not let me down?


Thanks in advance!|


Might have posted this in the wrong section have moved it to the board section.

I went off their sizing chart and at 190 I'm on a 159.
