Whoa dude, cheers for the speedy reply!
that's pretty cool cos i've got some friends in cambridge uni, so spent some time over that way. : ]
I haven't really touched on bindings yet, still looking to get the board right first, but i'll keep them in mind for when i do. This is probably my fault for not saying eariler but i am really looking to spend a max of £300 on the board and then £150 on the bindings, but thanks for the sugestions anyway! = ]
