female Female riders new to park

Beginner to intermediate rider looking to start hitting up the park (small jumps, boxes, etc.)

Need a new board and bindings and leaning towards the Bataleon Feelbetter or Never Summer Onyx.

Union bindings, burton bindings, ride bindings? Any suggestions?

I agree with him try out riding park before going and buying a setup i had a friend who wanted to get into park went and bought. Whole new setup turns out it just wasnt right for the way he rides so what im getting at is try before you ride

Burton Lexa is a good all around female binding even if you decide park ain't your thing. Good response and comfy to stop them landings.

I finally tried out the park last weekend...and it turns out i'm more chicken than I thought! Very intimidating sharing the area with such good people (in my opinion at least haha)

Tried an extremely easy box on both my Burton Blender with Burton Escapade bindings, and a friend's Gnu Bstreet with Rome Targa bindings. Felt a difference in the landing and overall ease of controlling the board with the bstreet more so than the blender since they're totally diff boards.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Definitely will try to get out to the park more, and sadly attempt smaller tricks =) Will likely end up waiting until the snowboard show here in Toronto next year to look for another board.
