Right now I just want a good board to learn to make it downhill. I went cheap as I could find on board and spent more on boots and bindings, ( like FAQ suggested ) just because there are a crazy amount of different boards. Only thing I knew was stay away from a v-rocker because of these excellent east coast conditions... (I say this as the ice pounds on my truck)... lol

ttccnn 390 boss is nice binding, you will not have to worry it when you get next board

speedjason soft boards bend more the faster you turn. to a point it wont hold the turn anymore it will start to wash out.

andrewdod yes, but right now you i dont think you will really know the difference because you are a beginner. on Rome's flex scale of 1 to 10 that board is listed as a 2.

sdm74 Does that mean it will bend to easy for me?

andrewdod yeah, thats a good size for you. like i said you may find that its to soft as you develop, but it will work for a year or so.

sdm74 Its a 161 wide

andrewdod what size is the board? and since youre still learning that board will do okay, but you are going to find it is very soft, and you may want to move up to something a little stiffer as you progress.

price wise i think you did well.

sdm74 finished it off with 390 boss bindings and burton ruler boots

just bought a Rome tour for first board?

Just picked up a 2013 Rome tour for $200 new. This will be my first board, did I do good in choice for newbie and cost?
Will be looking for bindings for it now. I know I should have bought them first but thought that was good price and didn't want to miss out. I'm looking at used Burton lace up boot.
I am 6'1" 230 lbs just trying to put something together to learn to ride with my 5 year old daughter. Figure it was cheaper then renting in long run and we went last week and we both are hooked.

Thanks for any info
Steve
