Another New Boarder Thread
Hey guys, thanks for being here, and willing to answer my questions.
I'm friends with traynor2501 and looking into starting to snowboard, however he's suggested that I get multiple opinions. I've rented a couple of times but they were crap snowboards.
I'm 5'11" I weigh between 195-200lbs and have size 11 (for boots).
Right now I am looking at a ride control 162cm, with the ride ex bindings. Is this a good combination for All-Mountain/Learning. Also I like to lean towards a more freestyle/"jibbing" I guess its called. Will this work?
I bought some Ride Io's here in Korea not sure if they're real rides but they're comfortable. The only problem is that when I look at most binding their sizes range from 8-11 or 11-15 Large and X-Large. Can I get away with buying the Larges? Or should I grab some X-Larges just in case?
I know this is a lot of questions, thanks Sally.
