hey everyone, i started snowboarding bout a month ago. and i TOTALLY fell in love.
i am currently riding on a Salomon 157 daniel franck. and im totally comfortable to it.
my status, i am new, but i can carve down a steep mountain pretty well with decent S's.i (im not trying to sound cocky) but i guess snowboarding and i have really clicked.
ANYWAYS HERE IS MY QUESTION:
ive been doing my research and i am looking at the BURTON CUSTOM X. (ive ridden it, and i REALLY love it)
its new (STILL IN PLASTIC), and its the 2007 158 board. he's selling for 400 picked up. is that a decent deal?
is that too much? or should i wait untill next year?
but 400 for a new customX sounds good?
i am also looking at a pair of used (just a few runs) Burton iDiom Bindings 2007 Medium bindings.
he wants 175. but i offered 150.
is this a decent price? (@175? or 150)
QUESTION 3: these bindings will fit my size 8 burton freestyle boots? (stupid question i know, but im a noobie)
NOTE: im planning to buy season passes next season, and go atleast twice a week, so thats why i wanna invest in a good board.
any other suggestions (such as wait for next year to buy ur stuff) or anything else to help a noobie out?
thx guys. i appreciate it.
