Board and Binding Suggestions for trip outwest
Thank you for taking the time to help me out. I have been riding for about 11 years, and can pretty much get down anything. I have always been a freerider, but I have begun to dabble in the park a bit more. Its been years since I have bought any new equipment, and so now I am in the dark about what is out there.
I mostly ride in Vermont, but currently am planning a trip outwest (colorado, montana, utah, cali, washington, b.c.) I want to get a board, bindings, and boots that are great in powder, but could also suit me well back in the north east. I have been leaning toward the burton custom 162, with flow five bindings, and boots I am at a total loss (had a pair of solomon with the wire lacing, which really killed my shins).
I am leaning toward to custom because it seems versitile (set stance back for powder, bring it back up for park etc...) and I honestly have yet to meet someone who hasnt liked one. The flows just cuz they seem quick and easy, althought there seems to be a love hate with these.
while I would like the equipment to be nasty in powder, I have to accept the fact that I wont see much in my future. :-( Any advice you could give me would be great, thanks again!
