Setup for weak ankles
Looking for some help buying my first board. Id like a board under 400$, preferably something that I can purchase online, to canada, free shipping. I guess I'd be an intermediate rider? I rode when I was younger, moved south unfortunetely, and have been back at it for a year now.
Anyway, 5'4, 140 lbs female. Closest hill sucks, hard and ice lots of the time. So that's mostly my riding conditions. May be some nice powder if we get good snow this year, doubt it. Looking for an all mountain board, Im more into just carving and taking what comes in my path versus time in the park. We don't even really have a park lol. There's a better hill 10 hour away, but i'll get three times maybe twice this season. But it's better than nothing, and I love the sport.
I have very weak ankles. I found shorter boards help that at the rental, but they were garbage anyway. I really have no clue what I'm looking for. Either way rentals at the hill are crap, I don't even know what they were, completely dinged couldn't even find the make. 5150 male boards i think
As for bindings/boots. Any suggestions? I think i'd pay up to 150 for boots maybe a bit more, as I want to compensate for my ankles. whatever for bindings, probably cheaper ones. Be nice for the boots to tie well as my laces always seem to come undone no matter if i'm wearing shoes, boots, whatever. And also something a bit tighter maybe help with me ankle problems (tore them up when I was younger). I don't know much about bindings...
I have size 8 feet in shoes (womens, sometimes smaller), so I'm not worried about board width.
Thanks for any input guys!!
edit: I was also pointed towards the Rossignol Diva Magtek. Opinions? Similar boards?
