Im not sure what terrain Im really into yet. Im just getting into the sport. I prefer to wait till I know enough about a sport to make an informed decision about what Im buying, but equipment issues are making it hard to learn. I keep having to switch my front foot so I can do heelside turns because toeside are impossible.
A question about bindings thou, are there XL bindings that I would need for my shoe size. Any suggestions for something entry level that is still of good quality.
Are your toes digging into the snow when you turn? Or are the toeside turns just hard on you? I found that the hardest turn to learn when I started as well. The 165 is plenty big, but the width may be what is hurting you. Although, a board that says XL on it must be wide.
XL bindings should work for your boots.
