I, like mostly everyone else, am looking for new equipment so I can start to enjoy the sport also. I have been a couple of times and now want my own gear. i am about 5'9" 180 and looking into around a 160 size board. I am looking at the forum roost or the burton clash. I want something easy to ride so when I decide that its time to go extreme, then i will. Also looked at burton driver x boots but honestly those are the only ones I tried on. I tried those on with the k2 cinch bindings. The boots were very comfortable but I am thinking I should just stick with regular strap in bindings. i want my boots and bindings to last so I want something good.
Oh I will mostly be freeride for now. Any suggestions on the boards, boots, and bindings? Also maybe some comparable equipment?
