Hmm, okay, possibly a very stupid question, but you can use different brand board/bindings/boots right? Im located in Ontario and I dont know many places that sell boards. Boardsports is one of the only ones I found online, located in Toronto. They dont have Ride bindings though.
I was just talking to a guy today who said to stay away from Ride, so it seems like personal preference is a big factor, just like with any sports/hobbies. I will definately look into the Ride bindings though. I definately want a twin board because I will be riding switch to work on it for wakeboarding. If you have any other suggestions on stores, boards, bindings or boots let me know.
