Hello, this is my first post.
I really want to get into Snowboarding but I don't really know where to start. I tried doing some research but I'm a little overwhelmed with all the different choices in boards, bindings, and boots.
I've been snowboarding once, about 11 years ago (25 now). I remember enjoying it a lot but never really had the spare funds to invest in gear. I do longboard for fun and I enjoy carving down hills.
Weight - 150-160lbs
Boot size - not sure, but a size 9 shoe usually gives me a little bit of toe room.
Riding style - I'm new to snowboarding but I love carving on a longboard.
Age - 25
Budget - I'm not really sure where to start. I want to buy a quality setup that I can grow into. Ideally, I'd like to stay under $500 if possible.
Your location of riding - Washington State
Any feedback or advice would be great! Thanks!
