m21att1 OK guys, after a lot of research I think I'm going to try out the Sierra Team board. Seems fairly forgiving and a good board for the price.

I bought boots before I bought bindings and didnt try the boot with the binding first...big mistake. My foot is big (11.5) and they dont fit with my Flow Flite 3's how they should. Quality is decent but last night I was at the shop and felt the other bindings available and there are some really nice bindings with very smooth ratchets. Just take your time and do some tangible research.
Thanks man, I'll do some more research for sure can't wait to get my own gear. The season is almost over here in the North East, but I plan on getting a season pass next season!

That said your probably looking at a 156-158 size board non wide obviously...
Thanks, I've been told so many different things from shops around here, I'm not sure who to believe. They said basically anything from 158-163 non wide.

I was looking at the Ride Control, Rossignol one mag (although I heard this is for more advanced riders). Anyone want to recommend a beginner board for mostly groomed runs, I'm on the east coast/ICE coast. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Money really isn't an issue for me, not that I'm rich but I've been saving up.
