Theres a shop down in Boone i like a lot called Edge of The World. They have a bunch of Lib-Tech board( all i ride ), GNU Boards, Burton, umm a couple more board brands. I ride the Dark Series boards, you can do everything with it, love it to death. Boots all comes down to how they feel, theres the Boa strap and the standard lace. They both fit differently so youll have to decide. And bindings is a preference also, ive ridden on a couple different bindings, flows are cool, fast and convenient, but kill your feet at the end of the day, Rome bindings are good as gold, Union bindings are killer. I prefer the toe strap, and Rome bindings...IF you adjust your Flows correctly the can be ok.
To be honest, the main reason why i got my LibTech was cuz theres so much ice a lot of the places around here so i wanted something that could grab and go yet i could hit the park with, Their Mange-Traction(MTX) and Bananna Tech(BTX) is phenominal.
Theres a couple shops here locally called Flipside where i live too which isnt too far from you at all, 30-45 mins from Asheville. They have some good deals and stuff too.
Ummm, theres also a place called Recess before you get to App, near 421 and shit, Brand new place, been there once...I personally think their overpriced, dont have too much stuff...
Used to be a BP down there that was a bomb ass store..
Dark Series FTW!
