Default New to forum

Hey everyone,

My name is Isaac, I live out in the northwest. I'm new to the forum and rather still pretty new to snowboarding in general.

I'm about to buy my first board and I wanted to know what you all recommend for size. I am 6 ft. athletic build, 185 pounds. Size 11 boots if that matters. I pretty much snowboard as a hobby and just want something I can cruise down the mountain on.

Any mid-flex board with rocker in the middle should do. Same sz range highme mentioned, but don't need to search specifically for mid-wide. Normal width at those lengths should be ok.

Rocker in the middle because it is more forgiving and floaty than camber in the middle.

Look for a few boards that match ^ and get back with some that catch your eye... people will give you better feedback once you've narrowed your choices a bit.

Personally, for a first board to someone who boards on a region that gets some snowfall (ie not totally icy conditions) i think Burton Custom Flying V with Mission, Cartel or Malavita bindings...

If I wanted to go cheaper so I can grab a lift pass would something this work for board/bindings? I'm not too picky. It says it is camber/rocker/camber profile... Not sure what all that means.

Odd the image didn't port over. It's a 2015 system mtn package. Boots bindings board for 300$. I'm not rich and would like to save as much as possible.

Waaay too small for you. Contact Wiredsport and look for a better deal.

Or search for used stuff. Or new from last yr.

Camber/rocker/camber = rocker in the middle. You could also do Rocker/Flat/Rocker.

You guys are too cool. Thanks for the stoke and the support. It is greatly appreciated.

Hi Isaac,

The System MTN is a new board of ours for 2015. The 159 will be awesome for you as a do everything PNW board. Let me know if you have any questions on this one or any other boards.

I would not be surprised if this season...and this forum...turn you from a casual cruiser to a crazed snow fiend

STOKED!
