This board caught my eye, but I'm looking for input on whether or not it would be a good board for me, and maybe one which size would be ideal--
This is my first season riding and I started out on a rented 151cm rocker board. Then I tried a borrowed 145cm traditional camber board and liked the speed and maneuverability part but hated catching edges all the time. Last time I went, I rented a 145cm rocker and I liked that the best, although I am worried it might be a little small for me. I'm 5'7" and weigh about 120/125lbs.
I would really like a board that I can ride for the rest of this season and maybe next that I can explore the whole mountain on. Right now I'm mostly practicing on groomed runs but I want to play around in the parks and explore everything as I progress.
Am I looking in the right place?
This is a great board. You probably don't need it because it is your first year but it is a great board. It is reverse camber, so you don't need to worry about catching your edges that much, it is still stiff enough to give you the response you liked from your camber rental. This board is really fun and it will last your a couple years for sure. The 146 is probably your best best for sizing.
