Ok well I'm new to the sport but my friends always talk about it so I really wanna try it. I know you guys recommend trying it first and I probably will but I wanna see if I can maybe get some of this stuff for Christmas.
Weight: Almost 150 lbs but I'm lifting so it may change
Boot size: Shoe size is around a 12 haven't tried on boots yet
Riding style: My friends mostly do freestyle and I plan on doing that with them but they still do diamonds every once and awhile so I want to be able to atleast be able to do thoughs too.
Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?)17 and as I stated before am gaining weight.
budget (if you have one) I don't have one as of yet but definitly on the lower end
Your location of riding: Pennsylvania
Well I don't have anything as of yet so if you guys could recommend any equipment that would be appreciated.
i will suggest two things if you really want to buy your gear before the first time you go..One get an all-mountain board...just because your boys ride something doesnt mean that is what you may fall in love with...Second get gear from last year... Snowboards - Snowboards Sales - Men's Snowboards
no reason to pay for something that either has not changed at all (or only graphics changed) or has changed such a small amount a new rider would not notice..
btw thats what i did last year...and thats what i did for this season..i purchased a 2008 burton royale over the summer and i love it...good luck and happy boarding
Alright well I see what your comming from but I can almost guarentee thats what I will plan on doing. Can you guys recommend any boards, bindings, or boots. Also is there anythign else I will need besides that?
Go to a shop and try on some boots first. If your truly a 12 then you will need a wide board but if your around a 10-11 then you can get a regular board possibly a mid wide, . Boots fit differently then shoes, I am 13 in shoes but wear a 11.5 in thirty two boots.
