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
yes thinking about some more advanced classes, what is annoying me is I do blue (some single blacks) without any stupid mistakes but sometimes i fall getting off from chair-lift lol embarrassing.
so all of you saying that boots are really important, any recommended brand model, also would you buy all at once or boot first then binding and board together
how do you tell the stifness of a binding? do boots have these features like soft, stiff too?
can you guys recon some boot, binding brands models and more board???
