Boots - whatever fits well and feels good. Need to try it on in the store.
Bindings - I don't know... whatever fits well with the boots.
Board - no idea, but lots of people on this forum are board experts ;)

Bindings, i would go with a medium unless you are just bombing all the time. I like the k2 formulas and nitro phantoms but there are other good options. Those are just ones i like and have ridden.

Board, you probably want something like the k2 raygun, or flow drifter. Again there are others but those are really good value and you can find them cheap online.

Boots, you have to try them on. Every brand fits very differently so you have to take the time to put them on.

Also what size board would be right for me

snowklinger 02-27-2014 05:23 AM

couple things
 
152-4 k2 happy hour, ns SL or proto, gnu riders choice, jones mountain twin, smokin all mountain thingy

32 tm-two or something that fits

burton cartel or malavita, k2 company, salomon hologram or union.

So i found a deal on the 2013 k2 raygun board153length with forum faction bindings for 330 ....should i jump on it....would this be a good setup for me

The bindings might be a bit on the softer side but other than that it will work very well for you.

You are pretty light so the board size is about right.

They also have the same board with rome s90 bindings or also with sapient stash bindings would any of these bindings be better?
