Just got my first board
Hey just got my first snowboard a burton baron Es 159w. And I got it real cheap but I want to change the bindings. Can any binding be installed or only burton? I'm new to this I've only gone twice so any help is great. An one other thing. I take a size 11 shoe. I'm thinking a size 12 boot. Does that sound right. Thanks everyone

11 shoe = 12 boot? no that does not sound right at all.
If anything, what sounds right is the opposite. Many boots run true to size, but you want them snug. My shoes are all 9 1/2 - 10 but I wear 9's in my 32 boots and they fit perfect.
I have a retarded friend who wears size 9's in shoes, wears 2 pairs of thick wool socks and wears size 11 snowboard boots and rides a wide board. This would be exactly what NOT to do.

in my experience boots are usually true to size, but every brand fits a little differently so you should definitely try them on if you can.
You can use any binding on the Burton 3D mounting configuration (I think the Baron predates the ICS "channel" technology on Burton, so you're probably good to go).
