Default Too much too soon?

Wats up, new to the forum and kinda new to boarding. I went boarding couple times last yr with rental equipment and loved it. So I guess I went over the top and bought the new 2010 skate banana and the 2009 Ride Contraband binding. Cant wait to use them. Think I went a lil ovr the top?

no such thing as going over the top if you love it. might as well get a good board, it will help you progress and will be WAYYYY better than renting that's for sure

I think everyone feels this way when you buy your first stuff.

If you want something Ride that should work with that binding I would look at the Crew Focus BOA. Definitely get a double BOA IMO!

The people above me are right, so long as you've got the right size you should be fine. And they're right, it just feels like you're going over the top because it's the first of many purchases of kick ass snowboarding gear.

Just don't be a snob about it on the mountain, wiat 'till you've got the skill too back up all the shiney new gear you've got to start bragging.
