Talking new boarder

Hey ladies and guys, I am a new boarder. Just started. been out two times now. the first time I bottomed out a few times too much and packed it up for the day. The backside couldn't take much more. Last week when I finished work, ( I am a snow maker) I decided to give it another shot. I am not going to give up! I had a ,what I consider a great day. So now I want to get a board so I don't have to use the rentals. Would you suggest I pick up a used ride from the want ads ? Since I am just getting into it, or should I save the big bucks and get a all new package? Also ,what about boots and bindings? What should a newbee get for starting out? Thanks for all the insite !

Its a good time if year to get new gear for low price.
Second hand can be rough... I've seen adds with colorful descriptions on spendind freeride boards for "fantastic" prices, having a look at it it's a 15y old board. You could be lucky, but also could be hard for you to discriminate the good deals from the fantastic ones .

Hello everyone.

After a week in Austria I am now officially hooked on snow. If I don't get another sniff soon, I will not be responsible for my actions.

Thanks to the long timers for all the useful hints and info on this site. See you on the slopes.

G'Day,

I'm new to the forum a relatively new to snowboarding. I've been to Japan and will be going back again soon. Only ever hired boards. Looking to get my own gear but do not want to spend too much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im a US 12 foot size so would assume i'd need a bigger size in a snowboard boot, i'm 6ft2in or 189cm and weight 95kgs. I'm thinking a 162cm wide board??
