Default Need help buying a technine board ASAP from WM before sellout.

What does everything think of the technine split T board from WhiskeyMilitia.com: Technine Split Swowboard w/ MFM Combo Binding Package for a beginner? i've snowboarded about 5-6 times, but i plan to go more often and decided to get a board. i dont want to spend too much, and this seems like a good deal. $150 for board and bindings, but are they any good? i'm interested in only snowboarding at the resort (park/freestyle??).

i weigh about 158 lbs, and the length from the floor to my mouth is around 152 cm. would the 153 work for me? do you guys think this is a good deal? and I'm not sure if i should get S/M or M/L bindings. i wear a 9.5 in nike sneakers. THANKS! i hope i get a response before they sell out.

I seen that on there...Seems like a good deal...It was about $180 shipped for me. Still a good deal. and a 153 should be fine for you.

I bought the M/L, is that going to be too big? There was only 1 left, i had to make a quick decision. If anyone thinks I should get the S/M, let me know, I'll cancel my order and re order the S/M. I wear 9.5 in nike sneakers, and 8.5 in timberland boots.

I'm not 100% on TechNine bindings but I think you went the safe route... most companies as s/m is like up to size 9 and m/l is 9-13

Whatever you do, don't order the boots online until you have tried them on. This is very important as your feet will either thank you a 1000 times each day you board or hate you each day you board. Find a local shop and try on boots to make sure they're comfortable and don't have any pressure points. Either buy them there or try to find them online afterwards. It's good to support your local shop.

Enjoy your new setup!
