Default buying girlfriend setup

She has only snowboarded once. well not even she walked down the hill with her snowbaord in her hand and sat in the lodge for the rest of the day. so i guess that does not even count on going snowboarding.

so she is 5'2ish 125-130 pounds. and her shoe size is 9-9.5.

i was looking around and im guessing her board size would be 147??
and for her bindings they would be M/L please correct me if im wrong.

what would be a good set up for her?? please include sizes

thanks in advance

Agreed.

When she walked and sat the first day, then you don't need to go out buying her gear just to find out she's not going to use it.

yea thats true but she really wants to learn. and i have her on my freeboard and she loves it. so that is a good sign you know.

also she walked down the mountain because she did not know what to do and her friends brought her to the top when she could not even turn. so its not really her falt that she walked down. hey i would walk down to if i had no clue what to do.

Whenever I bring new people I bring them straight to the top and spend hte next hour and a half trying to get down. Then do it again, and it takes half the time...

Either way I would spend over $500 on a good setup unless you know she is really into it.

Let her try it for a few more days, see how it goes, remember there are some weirdos out there that hate winter sports .

ok i guess i should wait till she falls on the freeboard. then we will see if she really wants to snowboard. if she falls hard and still wants to learn on the freeboard. then it should be fine with snowboarding.

and yea eather way im going to buy her a snowboard. the setup does not have to be great i just want one that she could learn on. if she likes it then she can get a better setup next year

That's a bad idea, you will end up spending double or more the money.

If I was you, I would look for a good deal, right now its a good time to get good boards at a cheap price. If you are determined in her a setup, get her something good, some thing that she can use for at least two seasons.

i was planing on getting her something now. yea it is way cheaper now then when winter comes around. and for the boots well im just going to wait on them and bring her somewhere to try them.

or i just mite bring her for everything because the girls like to have a pretty board instead of a good quality board
