How is my set up?
Hey, I've gone snowboarding a couple of times now and have decided to invest in some gear. I plan on buying:

Burton Bootlegger bindings, Burton Moto boots, and a Rome Artifact snowboard.

I plan on doing a mix of all mountain and park riding. Is this a decent set up?

thanks in advance for the help,

Everything you've got is super soft, so if thats what you want, you're good to go.
that setup will excel in the park, especially on rails, but may feel a bit too noodly for all mountain, and bigger jumps.

But you ,might love having a soft setup to get jibby and surfy all over the hill.

what alchemy said. I have a soft setup for all mountain and jumps, but I weigh very little for my height so it all works out fine.

how did you decide on your boots tho? trying them on is an absolute must, but make sure you try other models / brands also. do a quick search on this forum about how to shop for boots and how import and it is to do it right.

It might be noodley,:huh: but unless you go 70-100 times & then are at the point where you just go too big & fast for it.

It'll take everything you can throw at it, I'm sure:thumbsup:

When you're that new to snowboarding you don't know what is good or bad for you as you haven't really developed your own style and technique. You will learn to master that gear and then will outgrow it at some point.

My first board was a Flow Zen freestyle board and I bought it for no reason other than that it was cheap in a shop that was closing down. I had no idea what I was doing. I rode it for about 40 days that season (my first "real" season) and now I know that I don't want to buy a freestyle board ever again :D

Honestly, I think a soft setup is best for a beginner. You have no clue at this point what type of riding you'll ultimately gravitate toward. It may or may not end up being what you have in mind right now. Just ride that setup until you can actually ride and figure out what you ultimately enjoy.

I agree!!!!!

A soft setup will be oh so forgivin when ya startin out!!!!!

And as Manic said, you'll eventually work out where to go after this!!!!!
