Hello I am in search of my first board so if you could help me it would be great. I've ridden 12 days on rentals.
I'm 6' 120lbs, 16 years old, and wear 9.5-10 sized shoes. My budget is to stay under $800 for the full board, boots and bindings. I'd prefer to stay around $600-$700 for the fully built board but the $800 is my max i'm paying. Also bored must be twin edge so I can lead with both feet.
I plan on riding park but I still want to be able to ride groomers and go farther up the mountain and ride deep powder as I live in Vancouver BC, so I have Whistler, Cypress/Grouse, and Mt. Baker all within a 2 hour drive. Cypress is where I'll be doing the bulk of my riding and since its only 30min drive from downtown vancouver (which is at sea level) its going to be rather icy and slushy snow i think. It should get powder higher up though.
I've looked at getting a 09 or 10 Endeavor Colour series as its a twin tip/edge park/freestyle board. I came across a Burton V-Rocker also but can't remember what the name of it was. I like the looks of the Lib Tech Skate Banana but I don't know if its twin edge, as I want to be able to lead goofy and regular. I've also looked at the Endeavor RC.
I'm open to any suggestions for board, boots and bindings.
