Advice on set-up
I'm in the process of getting my first set-up, I had an idea of what I wanted but already made an impulse buy. Before I do anything reckless I want to get some input from experienced users.
I've been riding for 1-2 years now but have been using rentals. Now that I have a more stable income, I'm feeling like getting my own equipment.
First off my impulse buy was a Signal OG snowboard for 200$
I know that the first thing you should buy is your boots, but I don't know the locations of local shops near me. I live in Markham, so if anyone has a list of local shop locations in the GTA it'd be greatly appreciated. Also for boots how much should I be spending on them as a first time buy? As another factor, I have a flat feet and have orthodics for them. Do I insert them into the boot or are there specific brands that provide more arch support than others?
For bindings I was looking towards the Flow Step - ins. Should I go for the lower level bindings such as flow flite 1-3 or spend a little more on the m9 and m11 bindings. I was looking for m11's or nxt series 08 or 09 models for cheaper than will ship with low duty or it included online to Ontario.
Any suggestions or advice are more than welcome!
