Advice needed for my 1st board

Hey everyone,

I have been snowboarding for about 3 years now and have probably got about 10 days total under by belt. I just moved out to Denver and decided it will probably be cheaper for me to buy my own gear instead of renting something every weekend.

I am 5'9 280lbs and I am a green to blue rider right now

So far I have been reading up on a lot and kinda decided on:
Board: Burton Blunt (2013) 162W
Binding: Burton Mission (2013) Large
Boots: Nike Vapen or Nike ZF1 or Nike Kaiju size 12

All advice from you all would be greatly appreciate!!!

If u go the Burton route then also get Burton boots.
From what ive learned on this forum the Burton boots fit Burton binders best (or the other way around, i forget)
Ive googled the Blunt, do u realize its a soft park board?
If this is what ur looking for fine, but for progressing on ur allround riding im sure the guys/gals here can suggest a better all mountain stick

Nah, most boot-binding combos even across brands work perfectly fine. In fact, you will be hard pressed to find a Burton boot that fits with the standard 0 forward lean highback on Burton bindings - for most Burton boots you would be at F2 or F3 just to get the highback aligned with the back of the boot.

Yeah you are right in the end I am not really looking to hit the park. Just seems like this is the best twin like 2013 model that is on sale and has a size I should have. Do you have any suggestions on a different board?

There is a load of threads asking the same, I suggest u read those
Try this one http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...ml#post1283489

Edit: not trying to blow u off, I simply do not posses the knowledge to choose out of all the boards out there.. In the end I went with a Jones Mountain Twin.

Thanks for the insight, I appreciate it I had real that article I am just more concerned about my weight and if that will have a massive impact on me getting a 158W or a 162W.
