personally, i knew i wanted to sideways slide so much, i bought the whole set up of board, boots and bindings before i had even been to decent mountain! such was the power of my conviction (and desire not to be forced to learn ski-ing with my in laws!)
from there and from having taught myself the tricks of the trade, i acquired my own opinion of what tricks, magazines, brands, stores, clothes etc, because due to my love of this sport / hobby / lifestyle, i immersed myself into it completely and immediately, so that advice on such matters was not needed.
whether i engaged in brilliant / averade / down right shitty elements of snowboarding, i didn't give a rat's arse, coz it was ALL SNOWBOARDING.
one tip i would gladdly give tho - it is a cardinal sin to call it boarding. you have to call it 'riding' or as i prefer 'sideways sliding'. i dunno where this pernickety complaint comes from, but boarding is what you do when you stay at a guest house / hotel.....
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
