    Posted: Nov/29/2010 at 12:14pm
Hey guys I'm new here and I was wondering if the sierra team would be a good board? I'm 5"4" 110 pounds and have a 10.5 shoe size. Ive been snowboarding a couple of time before but I'm mainly a beginner and hope to get into tricks this year.

Thanks

Check out this thread:
http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=40125

You're going to be looking for a board around 146cm - 152cm, shorter if you plan on jibbing and pulling ground tricks.  Look for a waist width of larger than 250mm, which is most boards.

Although the Sierra Team is perfectly fine, but sounds like you might want something softer with good amount of flex.

Some other boards you may be interested in:

Burton Blunt
Sierra Stunt
Capita Horrorscope

Did you google it?

Dude, if you want a nice beginner board, I have a brand new Palmer P-line 150cm I bought from here last year, but never sold it. I can ship it for $135, send me a private message if you want. Its pretty similar to the Sierra Team (thats what I have now) in terms of flex and size and camber, but half the cost!

Grab a Sierra Stunt instead if you plan on getting into park. Sounds like it'll suit your needs nicely.

The stunt would be good, but the Team is a solid board as well. It's also a twin, which will help when doing tricks or riding switch. The team is also a bit stiffer than the stunt, so if you're a beginner it may be better for groomed runs at higher speeds. Either way, you'll be getting a solid board.
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

Is a magnetraction board good for beginners? I'm in the east coast and there's  a lot of ice but the person who sold me the board said it's not recommended for beginners.

It would depend on what board it was. As long as it isnt too stiff or too soft, too long or too short you should be good.

any of the sierra boards would be a good choice, i would reccomend a 150 if you plan on doing any park and a 152 if youplan on just bombing the slopes.

I would recommend a 147 for park.  My bro is about the same height and weight and he rides the 147 Sierra Stunt.
