Large snowboard newb needs some help/advice


I am a complete newb when it comes to snowboarding. I have been to a dry slope before but not out on proper slopes. I am heading out to resort/festival in Austria in 4 weeks and am still without board/bindings (long story)

I am 6 feet 3 and I weigh about 222lbs or 101 kilos. I also have size 15 feet. The boots I have arriving are a pair of Ride Bigfoot mens in a 16 (UK 16). I ordered these online and were only available in a 16/17. I searched everywhere else for shoes in this size and wasn't able to get anything so I had to go for these.

I have been looking all over the internet looking for potential equipment but I am unable to locate anything specific.

Could anyone here offer me some advice on what size board would be good and moreso if an x-large binding would cover the boots I have. I was told I might need a riser.

hoping someone here can help me.

Many thanks
