I went snowboarding for my first time about a week and a half ago. It was fun, definitely did my fair share of falling, but a good time. Knew I was going back yesterday and this coming Wednesday. So instead of paying the $75 to rent a board for 3 days from a local place here, I decided to buy my own setup lol. I went in knowing what I wanted, but maybe since its later in the season or for whatever reason they didn't have most of the things I wanted to get.
What I wanted was a k2 anagram board, formula bindings, and to look at the raider boots. The only thing they had in stock in my size was the anagram board. I ended up getting Ride Orion boots and k2 cinch ctc bindings.
So here is are my questions. Do you feel that is a decent setup? Does the board come pre-waxed? Also, my boot size I bought was an 8. A medium binding went from 5-8 and a large went from 8-11 so I could either be on the high side of the medium binding or the low side of the large binding. I asked the guy where I bought my stuff, he recommended the large. Was this a good idea to get the large or should I have gotten the medium?
I used the setup yesterday and it was a night and day difference in my riding ability. With my rental my 1st day, I couldn't stop and couldn't turn very well. Literally when I took my setup out, I could have the board sideways, stop fairly quickly, switch sides, and I was in shock about how much better I was just cause of the new setup. Sorry for the essay lol.
