boards, boots, and bindings.
I have trying to decide what board to get this year. I ride 40+ days a year. I am 110 pounds and ride with my local team. I compete regularly with usasa. I am 5'5" and wondering what gear to get. I'll start with boards. I have been looking at the burton hero and joystick, the k2 turbo dream or jibpan, the forum substance, and the lib-tech skate banana. I want to spend around 500$ or less on a board. I ride park and pow all year, i compete in slalom, boarder cross, slope, pipe, gs. I do a lot of park and ride pow when ever it falls. I want a good all around board. I'm sure i can ride it in pow so it doesn't need to be focused on pow more park. I am really into the whole reverse camber and zero camber stuff. THe skate banana almost seems like too much though. I like this camber and want to be able to butter and stuff but I don't like my boards too loose.
Next is boots. What ever it is it has to have a form of speedzone, trizone, etc. I don't like boa. Just speedzone. I like my boots around an 8 on flex. I have ridden the forum stunners and loved them. I also looked at burton Ion and driver X. So what ever it is not too expensive. But nice boots, with speedzone, hopefully some nice cushioning and everything.
Finally bindings. I am set on burton bindings. I just love them. I have been looking at cartels, triad, malavitas, and infidels. What ever works out. I have ridden cartels and love them but I think I might be ready for another step up. THanks
