Bigguy, by now u most likly have your board and boots. The boots are the most important (yes I know everyone calls them bindings lol). The boots can often be more important then the board.
Most places will let you try for 30 days and then buy....Watson boots (bindings) are about the most comfortable and long lasting you can get.
Theres nothing like doing good tricks to make ya feel good all over. Have Fun!
