I know you all hate newb questions but I am stationed in Italy and borrowed a guys board last year to go boarding and this year I wanted my own with out breaking the bank. So this is what I got.
K2 Raider Boa bindings 2012
Westige Hero board
5th Element stealth bindings
I tried to not spend more then $400 and I only spent 349 on the entire package. I got the better boots because next year I plan on getting a different board. For a beginner does this sound like an alright set up for a basic all mountain board.
