Not sure if it helps, but I've got size 12 boots and ride a NS EVO. I keep my angles around 12's or 15's ducked out. No issues with width. Evo is fun and playful and the perfect hybrid in my opinion. I don't have a plethora of experience to quantify that, so take it as you will. All I know is I'm super happy with my set up.

Any pandora 140's from 2011? What can I say, my girl's #1 consideration is graphics, so I need to find a good board with good graphics. The 2012 is meh

Milo303 Snow Creek can get pretty icy, but I've never ripped out east so I can't debate that...


I'm a Variogrip fan as well

CheeseForSteeze Snow Creek's park is actually pretty fun considering it's just a 300 ft hill. I took my horrorscope on the plane with me last season over Christmas break and lapped a couple of times. I didn't have too many problems with the conditions. In fact Snow Creek is probably softer than some of the stuff we have out East.

NS Boards have R&C and Variogrip which I found is grip enough.

Milo303 Ohhh, ya I moved to Denver from KC, I feel you.

I can't remember the name of the shop I used to hit, but they were all douche bags anyways.

Recommend you looking into Never Summer or YES!

I own a couple NS personally and my lady owns one also.

But now that you say you live in KC, Snow Creek is fairly icy..... I assumed you lived in CO, but maybe a Mag board isn't so bad for you if you ever hit SC.

RCJ87 I would love to go to a shop and set this thing up but I live in KC where there isnt an abundance of board shops. The one they do have here doesnt have jack for selection. I'd like to get all of this now while last year's stuff is on heavy discount.

CheeseForSteeze Find some good boots first. Then you can get a binding that will work well with them, although most bindings don't have problems accompanying a wide range of boot shapes.

Most shops will take a hit on the retail margin if you buy your deck and bindings together. I personally don't like Mervin decks (Gnu/LibTech/Roxy) not because they aren't good, but because they are so damned expensive, I think there are just better options for that kind of money.

I hope DC stuff doesn't go the way of Gnu ... the curse of Quiksilever.

readimag I would go to a store and see if they have those boards in stock and see if they can set up some bindings on there for you. This way you will find a ruff angle you like and also know if you need that wide board, I think you will unless you are angled heavy. While i love the banana in any style, I could see you also going for a k2 darkstar or NS proto ctx.
