Default Can I buy this equipment?

Hi there, I want you to ask guys, is it worth it to buy Flow "merc" http://www.store-flow.com/products/m...c_FD10MMERCBLK board and "the arns lace" boots http://www.store-flow.com/products/m...e_FB10MANLABKG, I have Flow flite1 bindings, I have no idea what kind a equipment to buy, becouse I'm new in buying, I was snowboard 2 times, In France and Austria, and I decided to buy my own board, I think I ride quite good, and I want all-mountain board, to ride in POW, on tracks or kicker, so It is good decision to buy this equipmemt?

Dear LT,

Please excuse BA, he was only joking and not familiar with european culture. However, it is suggested you read the forums and use search before posting questions to the forum.

Regarding your questions,

1) Boots - Do not buy boots from the internet. You must visit several stores and try the boots on to find a proper fitting boot.

2) Snowboard - The Flow Merc is an entry level snowboard. Most of the members on this forum are advanced riders interested in advanced snowboards. But I remember reading somewhere that the snowboard designer at Flow was well regarded.

In addition, post you weight, shoe size, stance and riding style to get responses from members of the forum.

Finally, below are some links to discussions to better help you understand.

Hope this helps - Nito

I wasn't joking he asked if he could buy it I don't see why he can't unless he lives in some country that isn't free and doesn't value the free market.

Nito pretty much summed it up, don't buy boots online. Try all and buy the one that fits your foot best. Make sure your heel is not lifting up when you stand on your toes, and there shouldn't be any pain/pressure points. You should also feel your toe touching the boot a little when standing up, but not so much when you crouch or do a hockey stance.
I'm sure this board is a good starter board for your use, allthough I haven't tried it. Just get a board that suits your size.

Don't mind BurtonAvenger. To me it seems like he's just plain rude to you because you not from the USA

You can always go try boots in the store, find one that fits you really nice, then go home and order it online you know

First off I agree with the 2nd poster, you don't want to buy shoes/boots on the internet without going to a store and trying on that exact model. I was going to buy some DC Judge boots online and I was going to buy a 10.5 or 11, but I went to a store and a 10.5 was huge, I would have to go down to a 10.

But back on track... I had the Flow Merc from 2008/09 season (the black w/ blue base), I bought it in the beginning of the 2009/10 season on sale at my local mountain. This was basically my first full season riding, so I needed a decent board for a beginner, this board was great in that aspect. It held an edge nicely, flexed pretty decent, rode jumps really good, and did rails decently good (I suck at rails). It was overall an awesome board for a beginner. The only reason I wanted to get rid of the board was it was more all-mountain oriented, I wanted a board that was almost completely park oriented, which I did... I traded that board for a NeverSummer SLr... the kid was a skier who wanted to get into snowboarding also...

Awesome go to a shop and not buy something tying up their time and taking away from their sales staff then buy online. I hope you get testicular cancer and die.
