Just need an AMAZING setup
Hey guys, I've been snowboarding a good 5 years now I think, never as much as I'd like to so I'm not great, this is what I can do
I can go down even the really steep ass trails without a problem and without falling (I can even book it without using the edges to the point where every tiny bump lifts me a little, but my board is stiff and meant for fast speed), I used to be able to flatground backside 360 last season, I've only landed one 360 off a jump that was frontside 2 seasons ago, I can go down basic boxes and stuff but this year I really want to go hard and get better, I'm tired of being really freaking bad.
Anyway I know it's a bad excuse but I want to blame a lot of it on my equipment, I selected all of it without knowing crap about it, got a too big snowboard for my height and weight, didn't know boots and bindings or even the board had a flex rating, so they could be all different flex ratings. I just matched it to color. When I ride a friends' board, it is so much better
The type of board, boots, and bindings I want is so that I can do sick presses and butters and stuff on, but also so that I can get BIG ASS air and pop. But I would really like to be able to do BOTH. Can anyone recommend a recent model of boots,bindings,board that I can just get big ass air on and be able to do nice terrain tricks too? I say recent model because I suppose technology gets better every year lol. I can spend up to 800 on all three. If possible, also some stylish looking stuff too so it looks good all together. But big ass air + good ass terrain takes precedence over looking stylish.
BTW my height is 5'8" and im 155 pounds
I know it's a lot to ask, but I REALLY WANT to get good this season
