Default New to Snowboarding

Hello iv done snowboarding about a year now. I picked it up pretty fast compared to others i seen try. I can go down any of the slopes iv been to. I really would like to purchase a board so i can get better plus not have to pay a renting fee. My college has a snowboard club that goes couple times a month. I have never been to the park but i really want to try it out. I am 6' 160 size 12 boot. I just need help on which boards/binding/boots are good together.

Here is a package binding & board from Ride at evo gear. you would want to make sure whatever board you get is a wide with size 12 feet. Leaves you money left over for boots which I would suggest trying on before buying to find what you may like. Board size probably shouldn't be any smaller than a 156 but with your weight probably no longer that a 161.

Here is one with boots from the House< K2 WWW 155 (not a wide board but wide enough to be alright), Lashed boots, and K2 bindings

for what type of binding to get pay attentiong to the base plate design. Many bindings come with base plates what will work with other insert hole patterns. The three main types are . EST, Three hole, and Four hole.. The first two typically mean you have a Burton board.

With feet your size only look at large bindings. Mediums will probably be to small and or narrow for your foot. Taking bindings with you when shopping for boots is something you can do but is typically not widely done.

If you are going to focus on freestyle the Swindle should work for you. If you want to hit higher sustained speeds and more all mountain riding I would go with something else. The bindings look fine
