I'm 16 and I was born in Russia, but live in Wyoming. We don't have that much snow this year, so it will be pretty fun learning some new tricks and information about snowboarding.

Hey all, I'm a 24 year old guy from NE Ohio whose gonna be heading out west for the first time since picking up snowboarding 8 years ago. I'm an all-mountain rider with a drive to do some hard carving through powder. My new stick is a 2013 K2 Raygun 160W and I'm looking into pairing a set of boots and bindings with that. The Raygun has a soft flex (i'm 6'4" - 155lbs) so I'm thinking bindings and boots a little towards the firmer side would be best for better responsiveness.

Can anyone give me some good advice for a pair of boots and bindings if I'm hoping to spend no more than $500-$600 together? I don't care if it's slip in or straps, laces or drawstrings- just that they're quality and are gonna last long. Do taller guys usually prefer canted footbeds or not?

Go try on boots at your local shop and see what fits your foot the best. Recommending a pair of boots online is like asking a blind person what he thinks of the today's sunset. It just ain't going to work.

I would highly recommend canted footbeds. After riding my 390 Bosses around 2 seasons ago with the 2.0 degree cant, it took a lot of pressure off my knees and allowed me to ride longer and harder each day.

Talking Hi from Holland

After renting for three years i finally bought my own gear.

2008/2009 Burton King 167 Board (2nd hand)
2012/2013 Union contact Pro Binders (new)
2011/2012 Northwave Freedom SL Boots (new)

The name is cozmo from Holland, 37, 196cm (6'4") tall and 105Kg (230lb), size 11.5 boots. Let's say im at advanced beginner level.
No mountains here, most of Holland is below sea level, so we gotta drive to the Alps in France, Switzerland or my favorite Austria. Can't wait to try out my new gear! I used to do a lot of skateboarding and inline skating when I was younger.
Got back into snowboarding last year after a non boarding related injury.

Got my board 2nd hand from the Dutch equivalent of Craigslist for 50 euro, used only 3 times one week.
The previous owner rode the board backwards (according to stomppad placement) by accident, tail in front for 3 years

Hey guys, I'm 13 (don't judge) years old and I currently live in Mother Russia. I grew up and lived in Rockville Maryland, and then moved here. I plan on moving back next year.
I would count myself as a intermediate, I just need to grow a pair and start going to parks

Hi all,

I'm a 31 yr old from minnesota. I've been boarding for 5 yrs. I'm 6'3" and 275 lbs. I currently ride a burton baron 172, but I'm looking for new board. I would like to go shorter with this one, but have questions about how short I can go considering my weight. I also need a board that can hold an edge in the icy conditions we typically have in MN.

Hey All- I'm a 30 y/o from Chicago and have been riding since late high-school (around '00/'01 season so about 13 years now). I get out to the Rockies whenever I can, but mostly ride a ton of park out here in the midwest (since that's basically all you can do here). I would consider myself a decent all-around rider and I'm okay in park. I mainly focus on jumps and have some solid 3's and 5's down, this season I want to start dropping 7's and switch tricks. I also run a film company in my free-time. I look forward to being more active on this board!
