My first real setup

Old Setup

1998 156 Burton Balance
2009 Rossingold bindings
AirWalk Boots
Gortex DCU's

Time to replace the 12 year old board and mediocre setup I have been running. I pretty much have been boarding every weekend since coming back and the skills have gone up significantly, This is my second season it helps to have mountains as close as 40 min to base. I have tried many settings with my last setup and... It was holding me back.. I will still keep the board though as it performed well at Hakkoda in the powder.

I road a buddies new board and OMG that board seriously allowed me to do shit I could never do on my Burton Balance that was made in 1998.

The DCU's were cool but only when I was the only Gi I seen with them on..... time for some new threads also.

Got this sweet 156 Salomon Drift Board for $138 shipped new from

2008 156 Salomon Drift
Burton Boots
Burton pants and coat
Burton Mission WTF Bindings
