Default Improvements on my setup

I need some tips and advice to better my setup. I can still return some of the stuff to get better equipment. I have been riding for two years now and know the basics and would like to start getting into rails and jumps. Please give me straight advice for good boards to start tricks on. Also Dont feel bad to call my setup shit.lol. I will not take any offense to it for everyone on this fourm knows alot more than i do. Thank you.

What i have now is this:
2010 Burton Bullet 154cm
2010 Burton Freestyle Bindings
2009 Rossignol Crank V1 Boa

Your setup's fine, there are just a lot of burton haters on this forum...their stuff tends to be of good/above average quality at a high quality price is all...so most people get all pissy.

Yeah I would ignor a lot of them, its a good set up. If you gave any top pro rider that set up, their riding wouldn't be effected, as its more about the person riding the equipment, more than the equipment making you ride better.

i agree with everyones answer.. People will start saying " oh burton is shit..you shouldve bought a capita, Lib tech or GNU" etc
i learned everything on my burton air which is no jib stick whatsoever.

anyways, start off on boxes waaaayyy before you hit rails. also learn to be comfortable flying off kickers just to get a better feel of weight distribution.

also, NEVER try to compensate for your board drifting off the rail or box. if u feel like your slipping off the feature then simply go with the flow otherwise u risk injury
