Default Buy a snowboard

Hi snowboarders,

I've been in germany to snowboard and ski 3 times(once a year), next year i go to austria. In total i snowboarded about 7 or 8 days. I'd like to buy a snowboard myself, but there are a lot of snowboards. I don't know exactly what style I prefer, I think i'll snowboard in fun parks, on-piste and off-piste. As you can see almost all styles, but I think carving isn't really my thing.

I did some research before registering me to this forum, for example I readed guides for choosing any snowboard, but I didn't really help me. I think I'll go to any specialized snowboard shop soon, but at first I want to know what you recommend me. I don't have anything, so i need a snowboard, shoes and bindings.

I'm 16 years old, my shoe size is 44/45(10/11), I'm about 75 kg(165 lb) and my length is 1,87 m. I don't really have any budget, but i think won't spend more than 750 dollar for now.

Thanks in advance,

I don't know how it is in Europe, but over here you can buy equipment either at one of the 'retail mall' outlets like Sports Experts or Sportcheck where they sell everything sportlike, or you can go to one of the specialty shops like the Boardroom or Coastal Riders. The specialty shops tend to be more expensive, but that's because they're not selling bottom-of-the-line consumer crap. If your budget can handle it, go to the specialty shops. You'll get better advice, better selection, and better stuff.

What you should do is ask here what sort of board would be good for 'everything' BEFORE SEARCHING for others in your situation and reading through the discussions first. When we have decided what board you'll need (here on this thread no doubt) THEN you can make your way to a retail outlet of said sporting goods and be talked out of the choice we have made for you here.


I'll get back on my meds soon guys, sorry
