yo.. im from australia, heading to big white for the full season in october. ive never even seen snow!! haha. so im a complete gromit when it comes to snow! im pretty keen on getting set up before i head over to cash in on the summer specials you guys are having at the moment.. is it generally more pricey before the winter season?
im pretty keen on doin a bit of freeriding and freestyle (tending more towards freeride atm).. i can surf n skate so im guessing ill pick it up quite fast? looking for a setup to get me into snowboarding.. n something that will carry me thru as i progress..
got a bit of cash, so its not really an issue.. within reason
ive been doin a bit of research but its a bit daunting.. so many options, and with the sizing n all..
6`1", 190 lb, size 10.5 feet
been looking at the custom, rome anthem, K2 Format, forum scheme.. but keeping my options open.. as i dont really know what to look for haha
also.. are vans boots pretty much the same deal as vans shoes with skating? cos if it is im down on a pair of vans boots..
looking forward to hittin the slopes.. n seeing snow!! haha
any help appreciated. cheers boys..
