hey guys

Im 24, picked up snowboarding about 2 years ago. I've gone 11 times these past two years. Been addicted since my first trip. Im really into water sports and needed something to do over the winter instead of basketball/soccer leagues.

Now for the first set of questions

I'm gonna be buying a bunch of gear soon and was wondering if y'all could give me some direction.
I'm 6'3" ~185 and a size 13. I'm able to get a really nice deal on never summer boards so I'm definitely sticking to that brand. I'm a 100% speed freak so i'm looking for a freeride board. I don't plan on doing park at all. (just not my thing)

So i was thinking a raptor, premier, or maybe even an SL. (opinions? wide? bc i am still pretty new, i can link turns.)

As far as bindings I was thinking rome targas, they got great reviews plus i beat stuff up. (they sound pretty tough) I wanna stick with something that is stiff, don't like the feeling of flex.

Boots are probably the thing i have no idea what to do with. (Plus i don't think i can get a discount on them ) Again i'd like a stiff boot. Also preferably double boas. Im personally thinking insanos.

Also can some1 recommend some snowboarding socks? because my underarmour ones suck.

Thank you !
