The most important hardware are your boots. IMO, the board is the second most important followed by your binding. This is not to suggest bindings are unimportant but the other hardware is more important.

Second, your bindings must be matched up to your board and your boot. For example, if your bindings are to soft for your board; you will have difficulty flexing your board. If your bindings are to big for your boots, you will lose responsiveness. ...

What's not important; the attitude that you can do anything because your friends make it look so easy. Believe me, I've seen a couple of friend go on trails above their skill level against my recommendation. They ended the day with more than a bruised ego.

Hope this helps - Nito

Nothing. Flows are different. People don't like Flows for the same reason that people don't like Burton, or Microsoft, or IBM. Because it shows how core you are.

There's been any number of discussions about Flows vs traditional on this forum. The most anyone's ever come up with that's even remotely verifiable is that Flows may be slightly less responsive if you're pushing it hard.

I have some specific complaints about Flows: they're terrible to get into in or out of in deep powder, and they're difficult to get into or out of on a relatively steep slope. On the other hand, they're a lot easier to get into standing up and you can with practice get into them without even stopping. Also they're WAY more comfortable over the course of a day.

For the record, I've owned several sets of Flows, Burton Missions, and a couple of sets of Rome Targas. For cruising the groomers on Seymour I always use the Flows. If I end up back on Baker with Wrath and NW I'll be using the Targas.
