I'm looking to buy my first board after 2 and a half weeks of boarding.. I'm carving well (would like to improve more and more though) and starting to hit up the baby parks (kickers and boxes).
I prefer messing about on the mountain with ollies and buttering, rather than nailing speed.
Does the Ride DH2 or Burton Air fit in with what I'm looking for? Both 2009/2010 models. Or is another snowboard more applicable?
As for length I'm thinking a 154 would be best for my 65kg weight..?

Find a place like a snowdome where you can go and demo the boards to see if you like them, plus speak to the shop people and try other boards too. Once you have done that have a look in the sales from last winter and find one cheap.
Someone that rides a DH2 will say get that one and a person that rides an Air will tell you to get that one. The best person to say which feels best is you.
