What up guys, new member from NC
1 Attachment(s)
What up, Im stefan but people call me stef, ive been riding since i was 18 or so (almost 5 years now), more of a downhill rider than anything. Rented once and after that i just went and bought a cheap lamar set up till i got better, well after 4 years i figured it was time to upgrade finally ha. I went out and bought the 2012 Ride Machete (after looking up youtube review videos, and reading up on it on various sites it just seemed awesomeee! I can wait to take it on the slopes), and I picked up some new 2012 Burton Freestyle Bindings and currently I have some 5150 Squadron Snowboard Boots from the previous season but I am currently shopping around for some new boots. Ive tired the DC scout single boa and Im thinking I def like those but I will see what else is around in that price range.

So just wanted to say whatss uppp

Hey Stef, nice setup! I'm more of a downhiller also. you're going to have a great time on that board!

welcome to the forum. great board choice too! bindings are entry-level though I believe. 5150 isn't a very good brand so I think an upgrade would be nice. I've owned two pair of DC boots (2006 Superpark and 2012 Judge) the Superparks were single boa and the Judges that I ride now are double boa. aside from all the improvements in comfort and fit between the boots, double boa is noticeably better than single. It lets you tighten the bottom of the boots as well as the upper to get equal pressure and adjustability everywhere. You definitely get what you pay for when it comes to boots. just make sure they fit snug without cutting off circulation or creating pressure points and make sure you have no heel lift. everything else comes down to personal preference basically.
