new beginner setup
I have just been snowboarding a couple of times this week and really enjoyed it. Until now I have only been renting, but I want to buy snowboard, bindings and boots for the next season. I am 84kg(185lbs), 191cm(6.23ft) and normally use size 10.5(US) boots. I want a good allround setup.
I have tried to do some research, but I will appreciate som help. Is a rome Anthem a good board for a beginner, or is too stiff? What board size should I get? 162cm? Which bindings should I get? Is Rome 390 a good choice? Do you have some other alternatives, since it seems hard to find them in size L/XL on sale.
I'm probably going to buy the boots in the local store.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
185 pounds...I'd say 157-160ish for a board. I know Anthems a bit stiff, but if you really want it I'm sure you can grow to learn how to ride it well...I'd probably say something a little softer.What type of riding do you plan on doing?
And 390s are a good choice. I like Missions as well.
I think a freestyle/freeride setup will be right for me.
Do you have som some suggestions for softer boards? Rome agent? Atomic Hatchet?
(Manufacturer isn't important, as long as it is solid)
Thanks for the binding suggestion. I will take a closer look at them.
