Never set foot on a board...planning a trip in two weeks.

I am mid 40's and have been curious about boarding for some time...not getting any younger so I'll be taking lessons and boarding in a few weeks.

I've been searching the net and reading the forum for advice on equipment with a plan to invest in some equipment that will keep me going for awhile.

Obvious questions are gear oriented...any recommendations are appreciated.

5'-9", 200 lbs, size 10 stompers..

All mountain mostly, powder and backcountry over parks and tricks, enjoy speed but stay within my limits.

Looking at getting a board that I can learn on and grow into and want something with alot of stability. Looking at cambered boards even though they are easier to catch edges on....may be harder initially but should result in better technique when things do start clicking.

Heard the first several days are rough, so we shall see.

Thanks,

Crash

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.
