Just wondering if i made a good choice...
Hey guys, i just joined this site in the hopes of finding a site that has a few less morons than snowboard.com... anyways, i got a new set-up this year and i was really questioning my decision, i've only been snowboarding for a year and a half and i dont ahve a whole lot of experience so i guess i dont really know what im talking about when it comes to snowboarding lol.
so my boots are fine, i got last years model of the 32 lashed boots for very cheap and brand new so thats great but i bought a board/binding package from zumiez and i decided to go with an aperture board which is the zumiez brand... i guess they put their logo on generic snowboards or something. I was sort of on a budget since i'm 16 and my parents are the ones paying for my equipment. also i got the board in 156 which actually seems to be good in size for me but i've heard of guys that are like 6 feet tall using 152's... i'm 5'8 and 145-50 pounds depending on if i had a big diner or not lol. The hill that i ride isn't very big so i mostly just freeride, i do some boxes and rails, quite a bit of ramps and thats about it... i'm kinda worried that the length of my board is going to affect the ramps part.
The bindings i got are Burton Freestyles which im not too worried about, i've heard they are good bindings for someone like me who doesn't ride on a huge hill and isn't doing fifty foot kickers...
Anyways, let me know what you think it would be greatly appreciated...
(The board that made me question my decision was a forum manual and forum recon board/binding combo on ccs.com, i'm pretty sure that would have been a much better decision)
