Thanks, that is what it is starting to look like. So I am going to definitely go and try on some boots first and first most. And when it comes to my board, I am thinking with all of your advice that an intermediate board would probably suit me better so I'm not trying to buy another board at mid season.
What exactly is the flex though? I read a lot of article about flex and the difference between softer and harder flex. For an all-mountain board...is mid-flex good?
