Some board questions
So after a few times renting out a board and some skis, I found out I prefer snowboarding.
This will be my first real board, and i think I will be using it on some jumps, groomers, and maybe a little powder. I'm 5'8" and weigh 140 as of now, and I'm trying to gain a bit more weight, and according to some charts the size should be 148-152. I am not aware of what the rental size was, so could someone help me out with the board size? I also have a size 10.5-11 shoe, and I've read that you don't want to have your heel or toes off the edge.
I have been looking at the burton ripcord, and could not really find any boards under $280. Is it possible to get the board, bindings, and boots under $300? $350?
