Default Help needed

Hello everyone,

A bunch of friends and I are going to Snowshoe this winter and I need some help. I wanted to get a board before we go but have no idea where to start. I am 6'1 235lbs, beginner-intermediate, size 12 and love all kinds of styles. I need help with the size and what kind of boards/boots/bindings I should look for. I'm looking to not break the bank here, but all responses are greatly appreciated.

Thank you all

Go to Ski, Snowboard, Wakeboard, Skateboard & the Freshest Clothes | evo and do a board search using the filters on the left side. Once you click on snowboards, scroll down and you can filter by beginner/intermediate/advanced.

Start there. It is much better to look at some boards and ask about them than pop on the forum with no idea and ask for suggestions on a full setup.

I can tell you that you would probably want a board in the upper 150s to the low 160s based on your height and weight.

Buy your boots first, read the boot faq, try on lots, spare no expense...not only comfortable but good fitting, no pinched toes, no heel lift ect...ur beginner they are the most important piece of equipment.
