I've been looking at gear that I like and thought would suit me when my half brother's father (he's buying it for me) called me and asked me if I'd look at K2 boards, I said sure. I had originally picked the Salomon Pulse Crown 160 that was for $189 so I thought maybe the expenses for the gear was a bit much. I looked into the K2 board and it's like $300+. I don't know why he wants me to select a different board but whatever.
If you want a board which gives you a more easy start, more for beginner level: The K2 Brigade
If you want a board which is also quite forgiving to start with, but you can progress on longer and have more fun on when you get some more skills: The K2 Raygun
For the bindings: I'd look for some bindings slightly more expensive, so you get some more comfort and quality. With these you'll be looking for new ones very soon!
And for the boots: Never, never just order boots. You really nead to try boots on first, before you can buy them. And that's a really important advice, I think everybody who just orders he's boots is just a complete retard
I was actually looking at both of the boards you mentioned, LvdT. Wiredsport, I wear an 11 in men.
I'll look into different bindings and post here if I find some that I like. As for boots, there's not many good board shops around here that I know of :/ so ordering may be my only option, to be honest.
Even a shop with only five kinds of snowboard boots (with some quality brands and normal prices ofcourse) is better than ordering online. That's really such a bad idea, believe me. Your boots decide if you can board a full day, or you need to stop within two hours...
And there must be a shop near the mountain you'll be riding, isn't there?
