How about this...?

I am basically sold on getting a 2012 GNU Carbon Credit BTX board with 2011 flow 5 bindings. still need some boots and am on a budget for the boots. under $175 would be ideal.

what do you think of this set-up so far and whos got boot ideas for the bindings of choice? size 9-10 boot

Every single person on here is going to tell you to go to your local shop, try on EVERY pair of boots that are in your price range and decide which ones fit the best and meet your needs

I'd go try out the boots first, buy the ones that fit and feel the best and THEN see how much was left for the board/bindings. Buy a 2011 carbon credit and you'll have another 80 bucks for the boots right there

edit: when I started boarding not long ago, I bought everything based on how much it cost.. With emphasis on the board. Well, after much pain and suffering with my boots, I decided to do the right thing and go buy some good fitting boots. The difference it made with my riding, both in ability, comfort and how long I was able to ride for in a day, was incredible. I have trouble believing that any board would make up for shitty boots!

edit2: You know what.. I don't even know what boots I ride! I know they're DC boots, with the Boa thingy, and they're white. But I have no idea what the model is, they're just the ones that fit me!

If you are going to buy anything in person it should be the boots. Every single person I have talked to has told me this. I went in the other day to try on boots and find out my boot size. It was the best thing I could have done. Being able to feel all the boots and see them in person is 100 times better than buying boots online.

You shoudlve bought boots first. Budget boots will suck and you will replace em soon enough. I wasted my money on 2 pairs of boots that doesn't fit me well.
