Smile fairly new to snowboarding

Ive done skiing a few times and tried snowboard once but wasnt taught well. now that i live closer to a ski hill im going to try it again. Ive been racing motocross for about 18 years now so im sure some of the balance and concepts may be similar. I found this boots binding board combo online and was wondering y'alls opinion. Blow Out Camp Seven Heritage RCR and Rome Men's Snowboard Package

Thanks,
Damon

Right on man, its great that you've started up snowboarding.

The set up that you found is really basic and isn't very good quality, but if you're on a super tight budget, it should suffice. I would recommend hitting up your local shop and trying out a few different things to make sure you'll be comfortable in them. If you have a little extra cash, you might want to get a better board like Burton, K2, or Gnu. Also, you can get gear for a lot less during the off-season.

Looks like a pretty solid package to me. Quality looks decent and it will definitely get you through your first season or two.

Don't forget about looking on CL. You can get some good gear there.
I know I have sold some of my kids good gear on there and made someone elses day

Do I just gotta live with it? We adjusted them so theyre offset stance a little but i havent tried it yet.
