I'm a first time buyer of snowboarding equipment, however not new to snowboarding. Looking for a cheap and decent board and pair of bindings. Can anybody give me a recomendation or two? Already have a pair of size 10Burton Moto's.
I am - 5'9" (176cm)
- board <$250, bindings ~$100 if possible.
In addition, I think you'll be better off looking to spend about $200 on a board and around $150 on the bindings since you can use some of the nicer sales to get a decent deck in that price range, and the $150 would put you in range for nicer (and a wider range) of on sale bindings. Particularly as we approach mid-to-late March and the sales really ramp up.
Your thread isn't getting a whole lot of traction, but let's approach it this way. You want an all-mountain board. I'm going to assume your boots are size 11 or smaller.
I'll make a few suggestions just based on your budget, but what region(s) will you be riding in? What's your experience snowboarding/how long have you been riding? The more you give people the more likely they are to take a stab at making suggestions. So, having said that here are places you might start:
Depending on the board I see you as somewhere between a 155-158
Camp 7 Roots Or the Camp 7 Valdez - These are a house brand for Wired Sport. Wired is a great member on the board and from what I can see the people who are buying these decks have been pretty satisfied. You can see a Valdez review by Snowolf here.
Hopefully, bumping this will get things rolling on some of the other members throwing their .02 in the discussion.
I would think you'll want something with a medium flex. You can look into any number of bindings that fit that profile, so in no particular order: Rome 390 Boss, Union Force, Flow The Five-SE, K2 Formula. I'm sure some others can make a suggestion or two.
