Let me start by first introducing myself my name is David ,I am new to this forum, and fairly new to the snowboarding world. I live just 45 min north of San Francisco. I currently have a 158w ,5150 board(seems to heavy)...I know newbie board. I've been snowboarding about 15 plus times. I am 5'8" 145lbs. Boot size 11.5. I would say I am pretty advanced for a newbie(so people say), can land the medium jumps at Sierra's terrain park. Any suggestions on what I should get boot,binding, board wise? Money is not an issue I want something that will last me a good few seasons and overall be beneficial to me to grow and better my skills. I currently ride regular but will practice soon on switch riding both regular and goofy. I like to ride all mountain, but chances are I wouldn't try half pipe anytime soon.
