I have a set of low end gears that I bought last season for learning. Now that I have advanced and gained interest in riding terrain parks, I would like to start upgrading my gear. In the park I will mainly be doing small jumps, rails and boxes. I was interested in upgrading to a freestyle board that can still give me a nice ride if I choose to just ride down a slope. But after reading through the forums, I've learned that boots and bindings are just as important, if not more important than the board itself. Below is my equipment. I am also interested in hearing any product recommendations and board sizes. I'm a casual rider (I go riding once every other week or so), and I was hoping to spend no more than $250 on a board. Here's my equipment, let me know where you guys think I should start.
As for the boots, im sure they're low end, but while i've been riding I haven't really gone through any discomfort thats made me start looking into boots, but at the same time I dont know how much better a different set of boots can be. Thanks for all your inputs
With that set up you are in some trouble. Def start with boots...then find a good set of bindings...then pick out your board. For boots I'd recommend looking at Celsius Cirrus, I was really impressed with them and wanted them real bad. They just were too wide for my abnormally narrow feet. Good luck
