Hey guys, I noticed there are quite a lot of boarders around here from the last board thread, and actually got the board bite this weekend when I went to try one out with my pal - yes, my butt is sore. There's not much season left, but I've been fishing the used market at some sites and found a few inexpensive rides. The main issue is length: my optimal "normal" board length would be 160 or bit over (I'm 6') but I tried out both 160 and 150 and found out the 150 boards are easier to train on. Also, I've been offered a couple of very cheap 150's, like K2 Fuses etc. So, the question is, would a 10cm less-than-normal board be a bad move for a beginner? I intend to get cheapo used stuff now (around $200 set) and when I get more cash at the start of the next season put some money into proper stuff. Also, I'm gonna use it only on very small kiddy-class hills - if I venture into any actual slopes, I can always get a rental.
