Hi, I went snowboarding last Saturday and wow I am hooked. I've gone 3 times now and finally learned how to link turns and stop after a lot of falling now that i can enjoy boarding, I plan on getting my own. I'm going again next Friday with a few friends who know how to board. I can't wait!
I think it's now time for me to get my own gear. I read some previous posts regarding boards, bindings, and boots for beginners. I looked at The House Boardshop Snowboards Snowboard Boots Bindings Clothing Skate Shoes since thats where a lot of people recommend. I've looked at the website and found 2 boards that I like.

I'm still not sure about what bindings to get. As for boots, which ones are comfortable and are not too expensive? I am probably going to go to a ski/snowboard shop and try some on but what brands do you recommend? also what other things are necessary for owning a snowboard? I don't want to spend over $400 USD for board, binding, and boots.
