Won this board...

I won this Mountain Dew snowboard a while back and wanted to put it together and start boarding. I don't know anything about the board and wanted to get some advice before I bought bindings for it. Im new to all of this so any help would be great. I bought Ride boots which are a size 8.5 and i wanted to know if there are specific bindings i should get or will any bindings fit this board. I've been looking on ebay for the bindings and they have some good prices. I don't need anything special considering I'm a new boarder. If anyone has some information about this board (what kind it is or if it is good for a beginner) that would be awesome. Thanks.

The only thing I found is I believe it is a Santa Cruz from around '07/'08.

Read this first
http://www.snowboardingforum.com/wel...nt-guides.html

Welcome to the forums.
Since your new to this, I wouldnt just buy anything on ebay. You dont want a bad experience your first time snowboarding. It takes practice and No Fear mental attitude. Take it slow and have lots of patience.

Good thing that you bought boots first. Because, not all bindings fit all boots. If you know a Snowboarding/ski specific shops near you, I would recommend you talking to someone professional about what your wants and needs are. This way, they can give you information and guide you in the right direction. Also, always test fit the bindings with the Ride boots you got, and see if they fit good.

ok thanks for the help. one more quick question, what do you think the front of the board is? both ends seem to be the same width and hight off the ground. I'm thinking the part with the design is the front because of the writing.

Probably safe to assume (reading left-to-right), the end with the big graphic would be the nose/front of the board. The end with the "MtnDew" would be the tail.

To be sure, you could measure the distance of the nearest inserts (screw holes) to each end of the board. If one end is longer than the other, that's the nose/front. If they're both the same, then it won't really matter.

i just measured it, the side with the big graphic is 17 in from the first insert and the other side is a little over 18 in from the first insert. so i guess that means the part with the mountain dew writing is the front?

Just curious, what's your philosophy for avoiding ebay? Bad experience?

Yeah I'm curious too, I've bought and sold cars on eBay! Snowboarding stuff is a snap... Just gotta make sure you read the description carefully. If the item arrives not as described, get your money back. Only pay with paypal or your credit card (that has purchase protection built in).

On the other hand I do buy local when possible, because with used gear I like to see it for myself.
