Hello everyone, I am new at snowboarding and I am picking it up pretty quick. I think its something i can really get into but I need some advice here.
First things first I am 6ft/6ft 1in and weigh 155lbs. I am looking for an all around board that is pretty versitile. I think I need a board thats around 159cm long to serve me well in the future. I also have a size 10-11 foot. Or something around there.
I am looking on trusnow.com at a package deal. Its a sierra reverse crew board 159cm/157cm that comes with rome s90 bindings for a total of $300.
Is this a good board/binding combo for a good price? If not care to recommend something better?
Once i get them I will return the size that doesn't fit with amazon's free return shipping. Or if I don't like them I can just return both.
Let me know what you all think, after all I am new to this and I could use some advice. This will cost me around $400 alltogether so if you offer any recomendations please keep that in mind. Thanks in advance everyone!
Well, I want to spend around $400 for boots, bindings, and board. Only because I may need a jacket and snowpants also. So thats like another 100-200. But I checked on the board and it comes in a 151cm, 155cm, 159cm, and others. So you suggest the 155? I want the board to be able to last a few years. Thats my thinking for the 159. But these boots are also availible on the website that I want to get the board from. I may just try that.
My dilemma for getting snowboard boots is that I have nowhere to try them on, all of the local stores near me are out of stock in my size for every boot under $120. But if I would order online, I'm banking on returns and customer reviews. lol.
Any suggestions? thanks for helping btw. Getting into snowboarding is so confusing. So much to learn...

Wow thanks man, I am seriously considering this. Especially with his warranty which is quite remarkable at the price. Now would you suggest for me just to go with the camp7 bindings, or invest in more pricey ones (if so, which ones). ty!
I think I will call this guy tomorrow. And I hear great things about the rome bindings, but thats getting pricey, you think if I got these bindings though they would last me quite a while? even for my next board?
