Hey guys, great forum you got here. Been reading some threads and learned some stuff.
So here's the deal. I've decided to buy a board after renting for so long... Man... the cash for renting adds up fast. But anyways, I've kinda narrowed my board down to the burton clash 08. It seems to be right in my price range, and I've read some good reviews for it. Anyone got any suggestions or anything to say about my choice? But the real dilemma is that I'm not too sure what size I should buy. Usually when I rent I go for 154-156 and it's not any problem, but then I'm interested in trying a short board. I'm a all-mountain/freeride kinda person, but I wanna start doing some jumps and whatnot. Any suggestions?
My friend gave me his old 05 burton custom bindings.
Oh, I almost forgot. I've been snowboarding for... a year or two? I used to go like once a season until last year where I went 5 times. This year I've already gone 3 times. I'd like to say I'm beginner going intermediate. I'm 5'8 and weight 130 pounds.
And boots, I understand from reading in this forum that it's key to buy good boots. Which I totally agree with cause once during twilight I was given this large rented boots and I have like no control at all. But then... I tried 8, and it was fine... Only problem was that my toes started getting sore and painful
So uh... I guess I'll be trying on some boots? Hope the ones that fit aren't expensive
appreciate it guys.
