Board / Boots / Bindings Help for Beginner...
Long story, short, I went snowboarding for the first time in 2008. Want to get serious. Very much a beginner. Going to Colorado, Vermont, and West Virginia this year and think it might be wise to pick up my own stuff. Wanted to run it by you folks first before I do something irrational...
Shoe Size: 12
I've been looking everywhere and I want to find the best deal but there are limited options in the wide board category. I really like the '09 Burton Custom Wide and I found it at LibertyBoardShop.com for $399. The Burton '09 Custom bindings I found for $129 and the Burton '09 Moto boots I found for $89. However, is all of this a good idea or is there something else I should look at? I literally feel like I've looked at every snowboard available. I know I need a wide board and I'd like one I can use just to head down the hill (not interested in park yet) and hit a few jumps from time to time.
I would appreciate any help you all can provide! You all know better than I do.
