Hey guys. I'm fairly new to snowboarding, I've probably been like 5-6 times in a span of 3 years. Each time I've went I had a blast, but I just don't really get out to the hill enough. I'm thinking that if I were to buy my own board then that would motivate me to get out a little more haha.
Basically I have no clue what to even look for. Boots, bindings, board, etc. Haha I'm about 5'10-5'11 and I weigh 140lbs,and I have a size 12 shoe so I'm not sure if I'd need a wider board or what haha. Any help would seriously be appreciated guys, and gals!
Thanks in advance.
Since you are kinda new to snowboarding, i will try and refer you to some "mid-grade" items.
So you dont have to spend alot of money for something you do very little.
Since your boot-size is right on the border of a Regular board and Wide board.
I would recomend a wide board so you can "grow into it"
For your boots. I would look into something a year or two back. Like the 2006 Burton Freestyle boots. Very comfortable boots and can last your a couple years.
I prefer the 2009 Burton Custom Bindigs. Yes, they sound fancy knowing that there 2009. BUTTTT!
They are actually really cheap for bindings. Only 100 dollars. And very good bindings!

Recomend that board ^^^^^^
Its on sale and will fit your boot size perfectly.
If your almost 6 foot. I would get the 156 size board. Maybe push into the 159 if you wanna grow into it..
I hope i gave you a few selections and ideas for your up-coming snowboarding "set-up"
