    Posted: Dec/22/2006 at 7:55pm

Hey guys, I've been reading up on this forum trying to find out what board, boots, binding I should get and have read so many different opinions I've decided to ask straight up. I've got $400 saved up to buy a decent snowboarding package but am willing to pay another hundred if it'll really make the difference. I'm in need of a complete package since my stuff is years old. I'm in the market for a nice freeride board, maybe a little more trick oriented now that I'm spending a lot of my time in the terrain park. I'm 5'10, weigh 175, and wear a size 10 boot. Any suggestions? Also where I could pick it up cheapest? Any help would be great.

you're saying board, boots, bindings?
do you have a brand preference?
how quick do you need it?

pretty much 99% of the time this place can't be beat on prices. they always have a discount going. there are a few brands that they don't carry. and off the top of my head, just doing a rough estimate, it would be hard to get all three for that much money without a pretty deep discount. i haven't looked in their sale section in a while, but that is a great place to start.

you are going to just get all the opinions in this thread that you read everywhere else, you know. they'll just be consolidated into one thread.


this place is bleak.

Check out out the Forum boards SS has on sale at 50% off.  They have some great boards on there, I might have picked one of those up if I hadn't already bought my board in November.  A month or two ago you might have been able to find similar deals on other brands in local shops, but with the season having started it's very unlikely at this point.

With the price range you set, I'd go with the Raider 155 ($200), Destroyer 156 ($200) or the Joni Malmi 157 ($215).

Bindings, with what SS has I'd probably go with the Drake Fiftys, you can get them at $110 with the 2007 discount.  I would check your local shops... if you're in the Bay Area, the Any Mountains still have some decent stuff under $100 as far as bindings are concerned.  I'd hurry on that though.

All that puts you at around $300 for boards and bindings.  But word of advice: don't cheap out on boots and don't buy them online unless you've tried them on.  I found out the hard way with my cheap Burton Motos that boots are the most important part of your ride.  If you're not comfortable, nothing else matters.  As a general rule of thumb, I wouldn't go under $160 MSRP unless the fit is uncannily perfect.

In my experience Salomon makes AWESOME boots.  If you have a wider foot, check out the Dialogues and if you have a narrower one, check out the F20.  I've also heard good things about the 32 Lashed (around $160 with discount, cheaper than the two I mentioned).  But again, don't get discouraged, just try boots on until you find that elusive perfect fit.  I honestly don't know if I'll ever wear any boot other than the Dialogue, just because it was such a bitch finding a boot that fit me.

Hope that helped.
