congrats! great way to spend that money!

but a total of $700 without the boots! ... be sure you save some parts of that cheque for it!

So...

you do know that the reason you buy boots FIRST, is because some boots fit some bindings better then other?

Now what happens when you find the pair of boots that's perfect for you but it doesn't work with your Cartels?

what f0rgiven said haha

but i what i can do now is take the board when it come in to the shop and put my boots in there and see how they fit the board and feet at the same time.. thats what i figured

and it might sound lame but im gonna try to stay with the burton stuff from the boots bindings board thing for this board. i figure it'll go better together?

and i have some of that check left over to get a decent pair of boots
