i'm sorry if this has already been addressed but i'm new to the forum and joined mainly to ask this question.
I want to get into snowboarding.
i'm 6'2 and about 275 pounds.
i know this may present difficulties but i don't care.
i need to know what's a good board to get. i also would need help picking out boots/bindings. (i'm really clueless)
i have size 14 feet which may also present a problem. can anyone help me pick out some gear that would be appropriate for someone my size?!?!?!
thanks a ton.
i'm also not going to be riding a super large amount (as i live hours from the closest area) so in a good budget would also be helpful. even though i'm aware my options are probably limited due to my size.
okay so i've picked out a burton custom ICS board that's 72W
2008 Burton moto boots size 14
2009 flow flite 2
how does that sound?
there's also a 2007 burton triumph that's much cheaper but its 169cm. would that be too small? i'd much rather save a couple big ones if that would work.
someone should respond soon. i'm looking to buy asap.
Hells yeah. Its a pretty stiff board, a 169 would work just fine. I have a buddy that is 270 and uses a 164 length board. He handles that well. A 169 would be ideal, I'm not sure you would want anything longer. The longer the board the higher the speed, but the Titan is a damn fast board anyway.
YOu could check out the Nitro magnum as well. Thats a big wide board and can had for around 200 if you get last years model. As for boot you are going to have to find a place and try some on. There is no other way around that.
I would not get flows for your size of foot. They can rip off the back of you boot. I have L flow bindings and a size 10 womens/ 9 mens and they riped the back of my mens boots off. I would go with a norm cinch binding. I really the Butron Mission bindings, they have an awesome hold on your boot and the toe strap is AWESOME.
