Finally buying gear
 
I am finally taking the plunge and buying some gear after boarding have gone maybe 3-4 times total once a year. I was given a board from my brother but he is 6-8 inches shorter then me. I bought some boots Burton Moto size 12 thinking I could use it on the board but my feet don't fit in the bindings either.

Now that I have to buy bindings I feel like I should just buy the board to and just make it my own. I still consider myself a beginner I basically have to relearn it every time I go. I am 6'4" 170-180 lbs with size 12 boot. What kind of board/binding should I get and size. I have read some basic knowledge but there is so much out there that I get lost.

Any help would be greatly appreciated hope to start boarding much more when I have gear and don't need to rent it anymore.

Height is irrelevant, weight is what matters, what is name and size of board.

With size 12 shoe you might need wide board.

with a size 12 theres no doubt about it youre going to need a wide board.
