Hey all, I'm new to snowboarding this year and have rented 5x and looking to invest in my own gear that can carry me into more intermediate riding. I don't see myself doing tricks atm, just enjoy riding down the groomed slopes.
I was thinking about the selection below, does that look good for a big dude like me, 25 yrs old, 5'10, 230lbs, size 11 boots:
You picked to different types of boards. The Farm is a free style board(twin shape) and the Deuce is more an all mountain board (direction shape). So out of those two I would go with the deuce. But I would not worry about a wide board due to the length you have chosen.
As for boots just go to a store near you and try on all the boots they have get a feel for what fits you the best. Boots are the most important part of your set up. So make sure you are comfortable in the ones you buy.
The mission bindings are okay but not great. A very basic binding but they will get you riding. You can also look around a bit for bindings. Every one has a personal choice for bindings. I personally like my Ride Rx bindings. A lot of people will say Union forces and a Few more will say to look at Rome 390's. For easy access in and out people will tell you Flows or K2 so just look around.
if youve tried on the boots id go for it. seems a good setup. but as stated before the boots are critical, mke sure youve tried em on and they are the most comfortable youve found in your price range... dont buy em without wearing em first tho.
