Default Cant Decide

So I'm looking to buy a new setup to help progress my riding. I would consider my an intermediate park rider. 5'10'' 145lbs. I am looking for mainly a setup geared towards rails and boxes as well as medium range kickers.

I've done my research and am considering these boards ( any feedback or prior use would be great).

153 Artifact
152 Scaremaster152 Kink* Another big question in mind is bindings, which are solid freestyle bindings in the $150 range?

* I wanna go to a shop to buy my boots so i can ensure the fit so I don't really plan on ordering them online but I'll be getting a 10.5 size boot if that helps in board/binding feedback.

* Also, just recently broke my goggles. Any suggestions for something new?

Thanks,

Mike

For your size imho and what your trying to do you need to be riding a 151ish...MAYBE a 153 if you cant get a good stance on a 151..but i'd find that hard to believe..

I mean i'd love to go with something that small but i was just going by the sizing chart comparison honestly. Out of the those which you think would go best?

Artifact- Had a lot of fun on it, but it can shoot out from under you on bigger kickers. I would add it to a quiver, but not completely rely on it. Don't expect it to last more than one season...

Scaremaster-Never rode a Capita...

Kink- Quite a few people I know use 'em. Same deal as the Artifact, but it might last longer because of steel edges...

those are all way to big for a rail board..im 5'7 165 and i ride my 152 stairmaster extreme all over the mt, mainly park though. it can easily handle the mt and is definetly the best board for kickers that you have on your list. i would pick the stairmaster/scaremaster. then artifact, then the ride..

Toooo big. I'm your weight and ride 151 everywhere other than pow.

Can't really comment on the boards other than the Artifact and Kink are noodles and the Scare is more all-around.

Bindings: look for Rome 390s, K2 Autos, Union Contacts.

Goggles: Whatever fits your face and has the right type of lens you need.
