Default Just came upon a sweet deal need advice :)

Alright so a little back story I just started working at sports authority and I found out today that they're allowing employees a ridiculous deal. Basically I'm getting wholesale cost so I thought it was time I bought a board I was looking around and what I found was a Ride Antic 157 and Ride RX Bindings and Ride Orion boots. Now I'm 150 lbs and I'm moderately decent at snowboarding and love freeriding with a little park thrown in. I was just wondering if I'm making the right choice before I go and make the purchase. Thank you in advance ^^

This is actually the boot I have and is my only pair of boots I have owned so far, only bought them last season. How does a soft boot affect your boarding. What kind of riding is this boot made for and what would you look for if you primarily just freeride but want to learn and progress into freestyle

Soft boots are mainly for park riding. If you're in powder, you want something that responds more and doesn't flex too much. A soft boot isn't going to kill you outside the park, it just won't be as easy to carve.

u will be happy with the antic and the rx...my good buddy have the exact same setup...not sure about the boots tho

tho at 150lb i think a 157 seems a bit longer then ur average all mountain stick.

It depends on the store. The website is owned by a diff company and doesnt reflect in store stock of items.

And thaaank you I'm actually looking for a stiffer boot would Burton Moto's do the trick?


Edit: I'm buying the 157 because I plan on gaining weight in the future as I'm going into the military. So hopefully I'll get bigger
