Need Some Advice On Snowboard Deck, Bindings

I got k2 raider boa 2008 boots and i had a crappy deck and bindings so i sold them and is getting new ones. I weigh 145 pounds and 5foot 3=160cm.Im a begginer even thoug i rode for 2 years i still suck. My feet are wide so please consider that and i'd like bindings that are easy to tie.I only need decent ones not like the best ones. Thanks you can ask me for more info about me for you to chose better deck and bindings for me. THX

First of all, what type of riding do you like? There's free-style, that's more in the park with the ramps, jumps, boxes, and rails. Or there's free-ride more in the slopes, powder and maybe backcountry with the trees. Then there's the in between with all-mountain. What is your shoe size so we can determine if you need a wide board or not. Have you read the stickies by the way, tells you a lot of information to get started with. Like this one http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen....html#post7108 .

Yep firstly im the free-ride more in the slope, so just riding, not tricks or anything like that. And my feet size is 8~8.5(my boots are 8) and my feet are pretty wide.Thx

i would say you dont need a wide board. since you have already had a k2 i would say that you should check out the never summer line. something like the sl-r. but if you are looking for something cheaper that you can progress in then maybe you should look at the Atomic line. probably something like the Banger. or if you are interested in some park riding in the future then you might want to check out the hatchet(gnarly board if you ask me) good for anything

CAPiTA quiver killer would be sick for what you want. Designed as a "pipe board", but all that really means is that its slightly set-back, and slightly stiffer in the tail but with an overall solid park oriented flex. Basically all that means is that it turns out to be a really good board for a beginner. Lets you ride it everywhere but its not crazy stiff like a dedicated freeride board which makes it easier for beginners to ride due to its more forgiving flex.

And, CAPiTA is hella gnarly.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

and can get some k2 formula bindings since you have their boots. it will be a nice fit. also, the formulas are a good binding anyways. but you dont have to get the formulas. you can get rome 390 or targas, or union forces

k2 is a pretty good company. if you check out the review from "angrysnowboarder" google that if you want to look, he uses mainly k2 formulas bindings. so you can't go wrong there. also you can order them online or go to a local shop. call around and see if they got any. i know christy sports have them

i say you get the capita quiver killer with last years union forces.
i work in a shop so i know a thing or two about quality and tech.
the quiver killer is sweet, im really partial to capita.
also
in my opinion, the union forces are one of the best do-it-all bindings on the market, and at the right price.
around 140 for the bindings which is a good deal considering high end bindings can be like 300-400.
and a capita pairs up perfectly with unions.
