That's what I meant (my english sucks)

What do you guys think? Should I buy new bindings/boots to match my new board?
I'm not sure, if your budget allows it, sure, why not? But otherwise, sometimes I think this whole tech stuff is overrated, it's the rider that does the most isn't it? If you feel comfy in your boots I would definitly just keep them. And for the bindings, if there aren't any problems (like straps that come lose) and you feel good with them, keep them.

I'm sure other people with much more experience might think different about this, but I experienced it like this. I'm an advanced rider according to the charts from whistler, but I learned everything with an rental board But perhaps you might learn quicker with some better bindings
