u have 800 dollars more less, first go out and find a good pair of boots try 20plus pairs find the one thats most comfy and snug on ur heels

lace type is important, i like double boa and speed lace loose up from time so this sucks

then use the remaining money on a board; being on east coast u may want a lib, gnu, never summer or anything that has wavy edges, those grabs ice better

as far as legacy, its totally fine even if u r worry abt its a fs board. for instance a premier f1 is way too much for beginner as a freeride board.


however i di recommend u a camber board for better fundamental technique learning so u trade off lesrning curve speed for skill profficiency

last thing, get a medium flex bindings that fits ur boot well, bring boots when buying bindings


if u have money left, sign up for advanced lessons
