Default Eeeeeep, 3 years of rentals and I'm ready to buy my own gear!

Well, after 3 years of renting equipment and falling absolutely in love with snowboarding, I'm ready to buy my own rig. Snowboarding is my second favorite activity, behind football, and I can't get enough. Luckily, I am not really operating with a budget, so anything is open. I'm looking for a board that will be mostly for down-hill freeriding, i.e. shredding the mountain, but also something that would be adequate to go off a few ramps in the park.

The rental boards seem to catch on the edges quite a bit, and I've been riding on 151's for the past 3 years. I'm 5'8 170lbs. (7% body fat incase that makes a difference, lmao). Any suggestions for a board, bindings, boots? Thanks.

I am in the same situation except I just bought my gear . So I can only recommend products based on others recommendations.

For bindings for mostly riding the mountain and some park check out the Rome Tagras , Flux titans, Union Forces

As for boards check out capita, libtech, GNU, step child, rome brands of snowboards I've read they're good.
