Posted on

I'm a beginner rider. I went to Burton's website and according to the site, this board would fit me well. I'm 5'10 and weigh roughly around 187 lbs. It sized me up to the 162cm. I'm thinking of going with the 158 since I'm just beginning. Would this board be a good beginner board? If not, then which Burton board is a good beginner board?

This is a perfect board to hit of the park or street rails. It will be great for you to learn on. I normally would suggest a different board, but for the price you can not go wrong. It is really soft, this will let you have complete control over the board. You will be stoked on this for sure.

I agree. You'd do very well on this board. The rocker is fun to ride and you'll progress faster on it. I'm 5' 11" and 200lbs and I ride the 158 fine, so you can ride a 58 no prob.
