Question opinions on gear setup

just trying to get a few opinions on the setup i bought, im 5'11 185-195lbs. bought a burton x8 160 L est bindings and size10 burton moto boots. all the reviews ive read have sounded superb as to what i want to do (park/freeride minimal pow) mainly practicing flatland style stuff. also looking for an all mountain board any suggestions? just need opinions cause i havnt been able to physicaly size everything yet cause im in iraq, but ive checked and double checked and done lots of research with measuremnts of my feet etc for the boots and height weight for the board.

Well, my cousin has the boots and I've only heard great things from him! But I haven't heard much about the bindings and the board.

I have the Moto's and to be honest I think they are to stiff and they leak water in like crazy. They are comfortable dough, but there are way better boots out there from other brands.

I think they are Burton's entry level boots, they not horrible, just to stiff for my personal preference.

I love the lacing system, fast and does not come loose.

I've got some Burton Freestyles, and while they're comfy, they tend to leak, and smell like catpiss after every use, regardless of how many times I wash them/ how much baking soda I use. The catpiss is my fauly though; I just hiked in them like crazy.

DC sucks.

Go with Salomon or Vans, those are your best bet.

well then! i guess i should have done more research with the boots(kinda took for granted the feet already being numb most of the time anyways) and damn ride you're loitering about as much as me almost (i avoid work at all costs right now and just make it look like im busy)

I second the water leaking issue. It soaks in thru the top of the toes much quicker than I'd like. Other than that, boots fine for me.
