I'm looking to buy my first snowboard gear. I'm a female, 5'6", 130 lbs (so I'd be getting a 147cm board)... I've been up at least 5 times, still can't do S-turns though but that will come in time. I've been looking at different stores and so far I've narrowed down my boots and bindings to the Burton Sapphires and Burton Lexa.
I think I take a long time to learn, so I'd like to get something that I'll be able to learn on pretty quickly... at the same time, I won't be doing any advanced stuff anytime soon so maybe I don't really need a more advanced board. Which of these boards should I get? And if anyone can recommend another board, that would be awesome.
boot I would highly recommend you do not buy online, head to your local store and buy there... every boot fits differently so you really cannot trust buying them online. For boards and bindings I know rome and never summer make some great boards. I have also heard good things about flow bindings...I'm 90% sure snowwolf will post in here too, he can give you the most accurate info
I'm assuming you want all mountain bindings since your just getting your handles, I see Rome has some good boards, but I'm not sure what kind of skill level they are based on...Snowwolf probably has some words of advice for ya, so I'll let him put his opinion in
