I learned on the Villain and I loved it a lot.
You don't really have a lot of criteria, so I'd go with an all-mountain type of board. At your height/weight (very similar to me) I'd recommend a board length of approx. 150-155. You'll get 100 different answers re what board to get, but just get any trusted brand and you should be happy. I currently ride a Capita and love it. Used to have a Rossignol and it was a well-made board, but the wrong deck for the style I prefer now. Before that (going back to the 90s now), I had a Burton board that was a faithful tank (Special 57 in case anyone is wondering lol). Lib Tech, Yes, Arbor, and Jones are all good. NeverSummer is also very good, but does seem to have a specific profile that makes people more polarized on them.Looking for some help/advice on buying my first snowboard. Not sure about freestyle/free ride etc. I'm 5'5 and just over 11 stone. Been snowboarding a few times now.So know what I'm doing. I think lol. I just ride piste really no parks. I want a good board that is designed for what I want. Any help or advice would be great guys,
