Hi there, my first post.
I've been riding a board for a few years, but not much of riding, most was about 7 times per year. Last year only twice, mostly because of sucky winter.
I now have Head Ignition board, which, i guess, sucks, Ride SL bindings, which are kind of fucked up, the screws were loosening up every 30 minutes, so i pretty much glued my bindings to the board (LOL), but they dont move anymore, so - problem fixed. And boots - dont remeber brand, and I'm too lazy to go and look now. Ride or Head, probably. they are kind of beaten up too. But that doesn't bother me.
So - I ride almost park only, about 99.9% park
, so i guess i need a freestyle board.. I can do 180s, two 360s, simple grabs, like tailgrab, mute, indy, melon, and few more. I'm not jumping anything too big for now, but I'm planning to go to the mountain almost every week this year.
So, if I'm kind of noobish, and I don't have a lot of money to just buy a new gear every time I want, should I get a new complete now, or is it survivable? I will have to buy a new board sooner or later, probably would buy a new board next winter anyway, but would a new gear make much difference, aside from that cool feeling of new gear? What boards would u suggest?
btw, what binding angles would u suggest? I now ride duck , +9/-9,, first time with +9/-9 today, was better than the old 15/-6.
DAAAMN, a lot of text. just so you know - i was planning to keep it short.
