So, I went into both The Board Room and Alipne Ski Center yesterday. Those guys seem to know their stuff but they were spitting information so fast to me that I couldn't tell which way was up!
I do remember tho the guy at Board Room recommend I get something like a "Flow Verve"(this years model) sense I want to start on the mountain and progress into the park. They said it's better to get a board that you can progress into (which makes sense and I think thats why I got that burton twin 4 years ago)
I am a bit confused tho as there are 3 types of boards? (or maybe more?) All Mountain, Freestyle, and Park, right?
The guy said the Flow Verve was a park board.. but when I goggled it online, the other stores say its a freestyle board
They also said to get something with a board profile like the second one down on this list http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-between.html
Well, besides those questions my main one was if this board On Sale Santa Cruz Perfect 11 Get Money Snowboard 154 up to 55% off is anything like the one he recommended me? I think it looks sick and is much cheaper.. also if you know of any similar boards for around that price range too that would be great
again sorry for all the questions

|extra0||uh, you're not just east...you're as southeast as you can get. I don't think there are any resorts south of yours. I lived in mtns surrounding Chattanooga for 3 years and it only snowed one time that was deep enough to be any real fun.|

|snowvols||Went to school in Knoxville. I think The Board Room is a much friendlier and knowledgeable staff than Alpine. Ober is a classic and really isn't that far if you take Chapman highway the whole way.|

there's probably nothing wrong with the bindings and board you already have (assuming you still have them and they're within your size range). I'm skeptical about the boots, because you really want those to be fitted in a shop.
I'm your exact same size and my board is a 155 cm twin (twins are just symetrical boards; front and back are exactly the same dimensions and there's no set-back in the binding inserts). 360 edges means the metal edges wraps entirely around the board (pretty sure only lib tech and gnu skimp on the edge material) and is considered better for the protection of the nose and tail.
I agree that, after experiencing oregon, you may be sorely disappointed in the amount of snow and terrain at your local mtn (ober). It'll might be o.k. for learning the basics and maybe some tricks.
