    Hi, im 5'9 , skinny (122bs) 22 years old. i have snowboarded like 12 days in my whole life (3 different years), and i love snowboarding. So the thing is, this December im snowboarding for 13 days and i decided to buy a snowboard instead of renting one for all those days… Im not really sure if im a beginner or an intermediate but i want to be an expert. I live in Dominican Republic and going snowboard is a bit expensive but i always find a way to make a snowboard trip.So i have some questions for all the ones who know of this kind of things:

    What is the best way to make a great snowboard set up for me?

    Does the brands really matters that much?

    Can i buy an used snowboard or is it much better to buy a new one?

    He's pretty much the libtech god and I love both off-piste and park riding so I'm probably gonna pick up a used TRS 157 πŸ™‚

    I have a chance to buy a in good condition Morrow wildflower board. Worth it for someone who rides maybe 4 times a year?

    As for bibb pants. Don't wear them. I have a pair also, but from Cabela's.
    What you need is the Alaskan Hard gear pants. I have a pair of those pants.
    They have belt loops, pockets, a button closure on top, and a zipper. Now for the legs. There are side zippers if you get too warm. And snaps on the bottom by the ankle.
    They are nylon on the outside. And fleece lined on the inside. So they are insulated. And they will keep you warm.
    And a lot thinner than bibb pants. Warm pants that are insulated don't have to be thick. They can be thin too.
    I know. I wore them when I went snowshoeing up at MOUNT SNOW in West Dover, Vermont on Thursday December 27, 2018.
    Plus these pants are waterproof and snowproof. The store to buy these pants from is Duluth Trading Company, in Duluth, Minnesota.
    Go on their website and buy them. Because I did.
    Have a good day.

    Andreas is the guy that would have worked at the local comic book/collectibles store but got into snowboards instead. Great insights!

    1:30 OK, I gotta stop you there. ROCKERS DO NOT FEEL LIKE A SKATEBOARD.

    I had a lot of trouble with this and have only recently learned I was getting incorrect information on this. I've been skateboarding for 18 years and everything I read or watched kept saying "oh yeah, rockers are like a skateboard" so I kept asking for rockers and kept wondering why I was sliding around everywhere and had no control. Then, I finally get on a camber board and fixes everything and I'm suddenly way more capable. Camber boards are the closest to feeling like being on 4 wheels because the camber points of contact are where a skateboard's wheels would be, so if you're coming from skateboarding you need to ask for a camber board for it to feel right to you.

    1. find a Never Summer retailer
    2. wait for spring sale
    3. spend spend spend!
    4. no regrets

    or you know
    1. buy a Lib Tech or other Mervin board (GNU, Roxy etc.)
    2. spend a LOT of time in the repair shop

    Why should you choose anything other than a Mervin manufacturing board?
