HELP! I'm moving to Ski Resort town and I've never snowboarded
I'm sure you guys get these posts all the time so take it easy on me. My name is Wesley. I live in Arkansas where it's 110 degrees and we get no snow. However, due to some awesome ass circumstances I'm moving to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
I need advice on what type or boards and bindings I need to be looking at. I'm a complete beginner but I'm not looking to waste money renting. I plan to snowboard several days a week for the entire season. Also I don't want to get a complete beginner board and have to upgrade soon. I'd rather spend a little more up front and have a solid board/boots/bindings I can use for awhile without the need to upgrade as my skills progress. (assuming they will).
Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Websites for clothing and gear etc.
I don't know what type of riding I will prefer so am I right in assuming an all mountain board will be a good starting point?
