Hey guys this season will be my 2nd boarding season, I'm an amateur, but catching on quick.
I board in the Vancouver area of BC, Canada.
Shoe Size: 9.5
Ride style: Most likely freeriding
, but would also like to be able to do tricks if possible!
Budget: Flexible, above average
I would prefer a nice design
on my board.
From online it says the length of my board (according to my stats) should be 150 - 155cm
long? And 24 - 26cm
wide? Not sure if I should go with 154cm or 156cm length...
I've been looking online at:
Lib-tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix
(but it's a trick board I think, how well do they work just carving?)
(don't really like the design tho I guess it doesn't matter too much)
boards (not sure which one is good for me)
(156cm only I think)
So... could anyone give me some pointers? What's good, what's not there? Any other recommendations for me?
Also, I'm not just looking for a board, I need boots
(don't know what the difference between good bindings and bad bindings are!), goggles
(do most of you wear them?), do I need a helmet
?, board pants/jacket
Thanks for any help!!
