Not sure if the setup I have will work. or what I have

My brother got me a snowboarding package off Ebay for $240. Very limited funds, just wanted something better than rentals and something to call my own. He got me a Joyride 154cm Thor board, Heelside bindings and Kemper boots size 13, my foot is 12 and I wear 12.5 tennis shoes. I can find very limited info on the board company.

Living in Indiana I will be doing more park than anything, since we don't have mountains. Go to Michigan to ride, and I'm a major noob. I want to know if this setup will get me through or just what would be my ideal package. I ride regular but trying to keep fluent with both styles. Oh, I'm 17, and pumped for this shreddin' season.

Honestly, for your first setup, I wouldn't worry about it. Those are off brands, so they're not superb quality, but they're more than mine to learn on. Imagine, if learning you dinged your $400 board, you'd be a lot more upset than you would with this setup (not to say I wouldn't be upset dinging any board)

Learn, have fun, and figure out what you want to do with the sport. Then you can buy better equipment suited to your specific needs

ya, got in trouble using the back button. I'm also 6' and weigh 195 lbs. I know about anything would be better than the rentals, as long as it works. and nothing breaks, i figure.

A 154 is kinda short for your size- unless you live in the park. Your feet are going to hang off at both ends. Still, you could do worse for your first setup.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

I think I'll survive this year but next i'm going to get new bindings and board hopefully something thats better situated for me. I like my boots though. Of course by brother bought burton board with flow bindings and dc boots. I ain't impressed with his boots.
