Default Sapient 2012 Stash 160 Rocker

My first post here. I'm thinking about ordering this board package...

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

My background...

I started riding about 25 years ago on a Sims Switchblade. I rode for a couple of years and gave it up. I was an intermediate rider that would jump when I could. Back then jumping was frowned upon.

I just bought this board package after looking around for quite awhile. My main concern was budget. I also wanted to try one of these new rocker styles and the price of this board attracted me to it. I've ridden only twice in the past 25 years and I used Burton rentals, traditional camber boards.

I was just wondering if anyone here has had experience with Sapient rocker style boards. I'm older now and I'm not looking to tear up the mountain like i did when i was a kid, maybe a little light jumping in the park. Any info or suggestions is appreciated. Thanks!

board and bindings will work, boots are somethign you need to try on in store, they need to fit or it wont be much fun.

my suggested setup for the lowest of low budgets:

A blank snowboard,Blank Snowboards :: Making Snowboarding an Affordable Pastime, probably a 157 reverse camber, either color

These bindings, http://www.evo.com/outlet/snowboard-...lack_Image.jpg

then go find some boots at a store that fit you budget and fit your feet. Expect to pay abotu 150 bucks for boots.

That all should put you a little above 400 bucks.
