Yeah for the most part, I figure I would get my boots instore and go from there as per reading the recommendations. I've gone boarding once and had a hell of a good time and since I moved out here, I figure I'd take advantage of it and invest in some gear and go more often. In regards to boards and whatnot, I just feel completely overwhelmed by choices so get ready for a flurry of questions coming up.
Since I am still new at this, I'm guessing starting out with an all mountain board. Any recommendations on some good boards as well as bindings?
What about actually mounting the bindings? Is it something I can do myself or would it be better to have someone do it for me?
I guess another big question would be about the size of the board I should get? Some physical attributes here: 125lbs, 5'6", size 8 1/2 - 9 shoe depending on the brand.
@Volboy: Yea, I've heard really good things about Alpine which is why I wanted to go there as opposed to another store.
Edit per Volvoy: For board and bindings, I'm looking at a budget of around $400, max of $500.
