Th3 Thanks. I tried on and loved the Ambush boots so I got those.

The process I was thinking of turned out to not be in my size, so I passed on it.

In the end, I picked up the Forum Kitchen Sink in a 154.5. I'm pairing it with Rome Targa bindings which I love for their versatility (I love to customize). I got a great deal on the board and bindings, and honestly that was the main deciding factor.

As everyone advises, boots I splurged, board and bindings should be ok with most of the stuff out there, especially considering that both of those are toward their respective company's top of the line. Thanks for the input though!

Riley212 get some medium stiff boots that are in your price range, they last longer than softer boots.

The process and mission bindings are a solid setup, if you like it then go with that. No reason not to.

Please help me pick out my first setup!

What's up everyone. I'm a male beginner - intermediate rider who is sick of renting . I am 5"7 170 shoe size 10 and I like to go fast every now and then, and carve, but I also love jumping and want to play around with learning buttering and jibbing. I'll mostly be working on East coast groomed stuff. I imagine I will hit the slopes anywhere from 3 to 10 days per year, depending on job/etc.

Ad for boots, I already stopped by a local snowboard shop and everything felt more or less comfortable so I don't really know how to choose.

Then about board and bindings, I like the Burton Process 157 with Mission EST but wondering if that's going all out for no good reason and whether I would even notice all the tech that's in them at this point, and whether I'd be better served hanging on to the cash and going cheaper. I am a very quick learner and athletic so I expect I will advance quicker than usual for someone who only rides a few times per year.

Appreciate any advice.
