Default Good deal, or no?

Hey guys, so I probably did a huge newbie mistake, cause I am a newbie when it comes to snowboarding haha.
But I bought a snowboard cause I thought the price was good without my research.
So what I'm curious now is, what is the worth (price) of the snowboard, boots, bindings etc? And if the board itself is actually good. I was just looking for an all mtn, starter board basically.
I bought the ride control board with ride bindings, DC boots, anon goggles, gloves, helmet, dakine bag and dub jacket for $175. good deal?

yea that's a good deal on a full setup. the board doesn't really matter that much until you learn how to use it. as long as it fits you ok you're fine. what size is it? what is your weight/height/bootsize?

the most important thing is that the boots fit you well. if they don't you will be miserable and won't stay out long enough to learn or get good.

I suggest moving the bindings up just so it makes it easier to get over the fear of leaning down a mountain. Also, great deal on FULL setup. You just need clothing which is usually the cheapest part if you find good deals. Sports Chalet last week in my area was %50 all past season (2011) snow clothing. All it is that changes is colors, and I still found cool colors. $145 jacket and $120 pants for only $145 out the door.

It's definitely not a bad deal. Just make sure the boots are comfortable and fit right. If they are not and do not, then go get some new ones that fit proper. Boots will make or break you on hill.

Definitively agree. Boots are the one most important thing, if they don't fit right and cause pain, your whole day will suck as you basically stand all day riding. (Unless you fall)

That's a good deal for a full set-up. Bonus for googles, clothing and bag.

Not bad, I hope you made sure everything was the right size. Especially the boots. Your boots need to be the most comfortable thing, or you will HATE snowboarding...

Good luck and have fun.

Yeah I've only been snowboarding like twice before, but instantly fell in love and plan on going a lot this upcoming season. I am around 5'9" ish and about 140 lbs. the board is 155cm and is in between my nose and chin, so I believe the size is good. The boots are a sz 10, which is the same as my normal shoes. And the boots fit perfectly, with a tiny bit of toe room.
I need to figure out how to change the bindings position then.
Thanks for all the replies guys! Really appreciate it.

Even if you had to buy new boots, that's still a good deal. The board is good enough you can definitely learn and grow on it for a couple of seasons and it sounds sized right for you.
