lisevolution If you can try to find a 32 Boots dealer. I really think you'll like the Lashed, good all around boot, not too stiff, not too soft and has great looks and color combos. There are a lot of good companies out there though so that is just one recomendation. Ride, Nitro, DC, K2, Vans, Burton, Salomon all make very very good boots.

In terms of boards and bindings, try to find some stuff on closeout from last year. In most cases the only real differences are the graphics. Rome, Ride, Atomic, GNU, LibTech, K2, NeverSummer, Arbor, Nitro...all make great boards. Bindings wise, I love Ride but Rome are excellent, Drake, Salomon, Burton are also very, very good.

FourSquare, Sessions, BonFire, Volcom, Burton make great clothes Burton like everything else they make do tend to be more expensive though. When buying clothes look at the tech ratings... the higher the numbers go in terms of waterproofing and breathability the better it is but do you need a 20,000g or more clothing set not really... anything from 8K up is very waterproof and will breathe well

Jwilliam head down to your local board/sporting good shop, try some boots on, find some sweet ones, then worry about bindings, then board. if you've been riding for a couple years pick a board size and shape you're comfy with already, and otherwise make sure you're feet are comfy.

as for brands I have no idea, I've only ridden Lamars, and I like mine, and this year is the first year I'll be riding strap in bindings since like 1999, so I'm about as clueless about that stuff as you. But I think it's REALLY important to make sure your feet are comfy and well taken care of, before worrying about boards.

what my girl and I are doing is just trying out a gang of shit, then asking hella questions and looking up reviews to see if it sucks or not.

GibsonLP Ok. So do any of you guys have some recommendations on what brands I should get and stuff? For my price range.

st.stark For that I would go to a store and try on some stuff but I wouldn't spend really more than $200 on boots so I could buy a nice board and some decent bindings...That's just my oppinion though. For me I just spent $470 on a setup (with tax and shipping) with $130 for boots, $200 for a board, and $120 for bindings. IMO spend your real money on boots 1st, board 2nd, and bindings 3rd, but leave at least $100 for bindings. Hope this helps some!

boarderaholic Get the boots first. That part is going to eat up the biggest chunk of your budget.

GibsonLP Around 500-650 bucks

mike1two what is your budget exactly?

GibsonLP Oh I have been snowboarding for about 2 years and I've just rented every time. Guess I shouldve mentioned that
