lookin for new equiptment

alright, i have a nitro board thats almost 9 years old. i got it from my uncle and have thoroughly used it. i would like a new board that is good for hittin jumps and rails in the park, but can also go out on the slopes. I do a lot of both. Also, I have Ride bindings but they're really frustrating me because the back snap that tilts the angle of the back doesn't stay up anymore. What kind of bindings can withstand jumps and rails for a couple of years? thanks!

A lot of people on this forum recommend the Rome 390 as a freestyle binding

I'm about 165 lbs. Size 11 boot. I'm from southern ohio (yeah not a lot of stuff). But i go out to colorado and utah almost every year. Budget would be about $600 max for boots and board.

For jibbing, go with what Nivek said. You might just want to go with a wide board given your boot size is an 11.
