new to the game

Tried out some boarding a while ago. I bit it constantly, but enjoyed every minute of it.

I'll be goin up to Pittsburgh for grad school soon and thought I'd nab one in case I found some free time. I came across what I think is a Ride Decade 2005-06 model with some flow bindings for a $100, hope I got a good deal I saw that they were retailed at 300 back in 05

Let me know what you guys think.

Any advice would be awesome.

I'm used to all board sports never had a chance for snowboarding because TN isn't a big snowy place.

THANKS!

A board is a board man, Nice set up and welcome to the forum.

Ride and Flow are reputable companys and make some great product. Get some days in before you go start buying up all the newest burton product. If your going to spend your money on some new gear going into next season, get some new boots and a helmet. With boots you wanna get the perfect fit or your binds wont matter. If the boot dont fit your going to have a bad time.

Also important, Shop local and dont SHOP ONLINE.

Yea I figured I should go new on things like that. I know in wakeboarding the bindings are just as important as the board if not more for a comfortable and controlled ride.

When you say to make sure the boots fit the binds is that a hard thing to match up? I'd prefer to sink as little money into this as possible. At most by next march i'll probably still be a casual rider.

No problem with local, I agree.

You can spend all they money you want on binds, if your boot fits loose your going to struggle with balancing. You don't need to spend a whole lot on boots either. Every company has a different fit to your foot and the boot will fit different after breaking in. Try on different brands and make sure you get the best fit possible.
