Was it smart to buy new gear even if its my first season?
So this is my first season snowboarding, only been up a few times, but I absolutely love it.
I have rented all my gear prior and it was not bad except the boots would kill my feet each time out.
So last weekend I bought some boots, and I thought this would be good enough for the rest of the season.
So I spent a lot of time just reading the boards and researching, and just said screw it, I want to go up at least once a week now the rest of this season and I bought bindings/board. I think I made a pretty good decision on all my gear so its not like I just got whatever the guy behind the counter told me, I did some research and this is what I got.
Salomon F20 - Boots fit awesome, tried them out and bought them online.
Salomon Relay Bindings - All Ive read so far is that the Salomon boots were made for the Relay bindings and they fit eachother perfectly, all the reviews Ive read seem to like them.
Rome Anthem 162 - I kept going back and forth on boards, and I found this board to be what Im looking for, a good all mountain board (I ride freeride right now but I want to expand to the Park/Jumps end of this season and next season) and this board seems to be good all around.
I know it's a lot of money but after the few times I went this year I am hooked and already cant wait for next season so I can get my season pass.
