I'm dead set on sticking with this sport. I don't have ALOT of money, so any chance I can get on taking advantage of a descent hill close to me for free, I'll be happy. A rossi board, rossi battle bindings and a red trace helmet will set me back 250.00 plus I'll get a pair of pimp'in new shades whoop whoop. I'll spend that on my 3rd trip to the park. Of course I'll still need boots before I board around home. I can swoop up a pair at the park for free. Which brings me to the most bazaar question yall might ever read. How stupid would it be to snowboard in Muck Boots? I know I wouldn't ride my motorcycle in hiking boots, and wouldnt hike in race boots. I'm guessing the same concept goes with snowboarding? That question doesnt make you guys wanna kick my ass does it lol?
