I'm a newb, someone please help me out
I'm just getting into freestyle sking, what ski do u recomand?
take it from a fellow newb. USE THE SEARCH BAR
What kind of stuff are you into? How good a skier are you? How big are you? Answer these before you listen to any suggestions. How can anyone suggest anything if they know nothing about you?
for skis and bindings
skis=the line 1260-there great in park and not an all bad at all mountain. the flex pattern is very forgiving. great for butters and that stuff. just an over all great newb ski
Bindings=reactors just great binding
Boots=wide ffet get nordicas narrow feet get salomon

'A little too much hot sauce on that one'
And don't listen to anything Reonic has to say. He's proven himself to be an idiot after posting 'wide feet get nordicas, narrow feet get Salomons'. Really? Let's examine the facts, you cum slurping piece of shit...
Salomon? Narrow? Really? Which one? The Xwave 6? No. Wide as fuck. X wave 8? Nope, same thing. X wave 10? Nope, again, same thing, wide as fuck. 1080? Same boot as the xwave 6, and again, wider than mom's dried out, over fucked, disease-ridden pussy.
Pro Model boot? Narrow-ish. It's based on the Course last, meaning that there's less volume in it. It's still pretty damn wide, especially when you consider that it's built on a race boot last.
Got narrow feet or sado-masochistic tendencies? Try a Lange. Need something wide? Try a salomon.
Bahahaha... or, you could call it the 'elitist snob' cult. Anyways, my family already owns a country club, so no thanks.
Ok get the Line 1260 ski, very forgiving, cheap, blah blah blah, and tell us how tall and heavy you are and we can tell you length. Get the Line Reactor 10 Binding, exellent binding, works well with the line skis. then go to your local shop and tell them you want a boot with a soft forward flex and try on every boot in the store they recomend, get the boot that fits your foot the best.

dude give us some specs damnit. Hieght, Wieght, Skiing ablilty, ratio of park/backcountry, where do you ski, and how much are you willing to spend/how much have you saved up.
Grab a couple issues of this years gear guides. Freeskier and Freeze etc to give you an idea what's out there, then narrow it down to a couple sticks search the manufactor websites, search Ns, thenget some opinions from gals and guys on here.
