i live in jersey too, ha. five minutes from mountain creek. the size of board you should get is easy to figure out. any board that comes up to your chin-nose range is a good choice to go with. all boards are measured in centimeters so the sizes are the same for every brand. you being 5'10" i would guess 157-160 is a good range. i'm 6'0" and ride a 163

I don't know where the whole "between the nose and the chin" concept came from, but it seems like something concocted by rental shops so that they could just yank a board off the rack and make it work.

There's roughly 3 and half inches or so between my nose and my chin. That translates to roughly 9cm. There's a BIG difference between say a 154 and a 163.

Yeah not going to get a used board now, I didn't realize when I did the first post how discounted a lot of the boards are now. Thanks for the advice! I did notice the channel for the bindings and was going to look into that, thanks for the heads up (and actually telling me what it was).

Appreciate it!!!
