Question Intrm/Adv Bindings (and Boots) Help? TY!

Hey guys,

New here. I'm in my 20s, been boarding for a couple of seasons now and love it. Looking to upgrade my equipment to something more advanced, more quality, something that I can further progress on for years to come. I'm the type of rider that rides the whole mountain. Not so much in the park (haven't had the desire yet), but rather everywhere on the hill. Starting to mess around with some small jumps, and looking to get into more freestyle type riding, trees, powder too, you name it.

The board I picked out to go along with this mixed riding style is the Arbor Coda. I'm about 5'7", 150 lb, with some potential to gain a few pounds through projected exercising. I figure size 155 board is the size I'm looking for.

Now that you know my board, the main question is: Which bindings?? Don't know a lot about bindings at all. But after riding on cheap Burton Freestyles from 2-3 years ago, I think I want something stiffer, with more support. I feel like there's too much give in these low end Burtons and my low end Burton boots combined. While I guess it's nice and forgiving for a complete beginner, at a more intermediate skill level it just feels like these bindings and boots are not as responsive as I want them to be, and it feels like a lot of energy is being lost because of this "give" instead of energy going directly into steering my board. (I sure hope I'm making sense!) At the same time, I suppose freestyle riding would still require some give in bindings and boots for movement freedom...

I would appreciate it very much if you could suggest a good pair of intermediate/advanced level bindings and boots to go with the Arbor Coda board and my riding style.

Thanks a lot guys. Cheers.

I feel like this is the only binding I recommend these days...but the Flux DMCC Light sounds to be exactly what you're looking for. It's the lightweight freestyle version of their super stiff freeride binding. This binding excels pretty much everywhere on the mountain.

Thanks, they seem nice. Where would I get a pair? And what size? My regular shoe is about 9.5. Also, any boot suggestions? Thanks.
