Default Beginner Boots - Burton TWC

I tried a pair of these on and they seemed to fit really well.

I am a beginner, do you think these are a decent first pair of snowboard boots?

I am a beginner as well and is currently using the Moto, it is similar to yours. I wish I went with a slightly stiffer boot though. I seems to have to exaggerate my motion to get my board to move. Could be my lack of skill, but I think a stiffer boot would help with that still.

Are you thinking I should go with a boot that is stiffer than the Burton TWC?

I am still a beginner as well so I don't think I am qualified to say which stiffness is best for learning. My experience is that I found the Moto (which is the same response rating as TWC) to be just a tad too soft for me. I should have gotten something like Burton Ruler.

I am unfortunately stuck with it, since I damaged the shoe with my board's edge. So I can no longer return it for a different product. I will still give it a try for the rest of the season to see if it gets better as my skill improve.

Anything better than the Moto and you're already getting a very, very good beginner boot.

As a beginner, I wouldn't go anything stiffer than a mid-flex, such as the Rulers.

So stick with the TWC or go try and the Ruler instead?

Go for the Ruler for the Speedzone. Super convenient and easy to use, and the boot is great all around.
