Hey guys, sorry for another obligatory "I'm buying gear" thread, but here it is.
I'm 22, 5'8", size 9.5 shoe, and around 150 pounds. I ride mostly mountains in New Hampshire and Vermont. Right now I'm somewhat amateurish, but looking to buy gear I can grow into, if that makes sense. I snowboarded a few times back when I was 18, mostly renting boards that I can no longer remember. I think I was renting boards around a 150 or thereabouts. I've gone a couple times this year and really got excited about getting back into it. I borrowed a Burton 155 board with Burton boots and bindings, (You'll have to forgive me, I really don't remember which ones) and felt pretty comfortable in this combination. I was doing mostly free riding, and will probably stick to it with the occasional jump or rail or whatever. So I've done my research, and I think I've settled on the Arbor Formula board with Rome Targa bindings. For boots, I'm going to go ahead and buy those in person so I can try them on before I commit to something that's could be potentially wrong for my foot. So my concerns are: Do my selection in Board and binding match me? And also, what size binding will fit my boot? The boots I borrowed were size 10, and I felt a *little* cramped with a regular cotton sock, but it wasn't that bad at all. So I think I'll end up with a size 10 boot, give or take.
Thanks in advance.
