Begginer snowboard equipment?

I want to buy my first snowboard equipment. Ive rented equipment for 5-6 rides and now I want to buy my own. My limit is 550$ for board, boots and bindings. Recommend me please a few sets of equipment that I could buy and use for at least 3-4 years. Ty.

You should check out Never Summer. They have all types of boards and they're really sturdy so they should last you a while :3

If you're just spending $550 on board, binding, boots and nothing else, you got a lot to work with. I'd go ahead and get a pretty good board. The rage right now is rocker, and I wouldn't mind recommending those since they usually have a softer more forgiving flex and the design will naturally just allow you to carve easily. The top boards that come to my mind are the Sierrascope FK, Horroscope FK, Indoor Survival, and most boards by Lib Tech and GNU.

550 is good, but its not a lot for all 3..

A good pair of boots MSRP are gonna be near 200, good bindings near 150 atleast...

That said if your interested in buying your own gear start with boots. Go find boots that fit you like a glove, and are comfortable..regardless of price.

If you need to get 300 dollar boots and that only leaves you 250 to buy a low end board and bindings do it ...

Decisions

Here's some good info for size/width. Pay close attention to the second link...it explains the why.

As others have said, buy the boots first. If necessary, buy a used board. You can always upgrade. Bad boots will ruin the experience. They really matter.

I think a lot of folks would be better off riding a season on a used board anyway. Once you ride a full year on your own, you'll probably advance and want something different anyway.

Brands - I like Never Summer and Lib Tech a lot. Both are well made and may blow your budget new. I'd rather have one of these used than some other stuff new...just me but I like quality.

There's always the option of saving more money too. ;-)
