So let me start out so I don't sound like a looney, I lived in VA for my whole life loved the snow and my Grandma got me a super cheap board out of a Cabelas or something for Christmas and I loved every minute I was on it. I recently moved to LA from Florida and I haven't seen snow in 5 years.
I do promotions and I saw that there was a promo listed for snowboarding so I jumped right on that!
It later turns out that the promotion is to give you a free board. The first thing I thought was "wow this has to be a scam" But I only had to pay $15 for shipping to get it so I said why the heck not. If i lose $15 I lose it, but if its not a scam I get a board. Needless to say it wasn't a scam and the board showed up at my front door yesterday. Its from a new company that specializes in board for women only BitchBoards®: Snowboards Made By Women For Women
I got the "aire" board, but the specs are the same with all the boards.
ok now to my nonsense questions...
How do the specs stack up against other boards? I've been looking around and I see that the prices are much lower than what they are charging on their site.
Does anyone have a preferred boot/binding combo that they like better? I know you don't need a combo but I do know that the boots are numero uno for boarding.
Should I get bindings online? I'm trying to go the most cost efficient way, but I won't buy the boots online because 1. i have very strange feet 2. I know you shouldn't!
If anyone has any insight please let me know!
