Try using your search in the upper right. There is alot of information. Also both Higher Education and Detention DVD's are great instructional videos. As far as bindings, try some lower priced lace-ups. Easy on and off and fit many sizes.

WELCOME! You'll find that most people on here are very helpful with anything you specifically want. My best tip for this (or any forum) is to do a search(link under sponsors,top right) for anything you want to find out. Chances are alot of your questions or information you would like to find is just sitting in old post ready to read.

A really good pair of inexpensive bindings are liquid force ultra suctions. Look on e-bay.

EDIT: I didn't see sydwayz already said search. oops.

how come you need better bindings, what do you have? I have hyperlite splits and are a great adjustable binding, they have the full boot support and they are great if friends what to try boarding, cause everyone can pretty much fit into them. what kinda tips you looking for? All i can say right now is when your out there riding relax, it makes everything come so much easier, and learn to ride switch as soon as possible, it will help you out so much, i didnt do this and i wish i did, so know thats what i have been working on. good luck with everything!

Don't skimp on bindings, get a high-end pair because it's ur most important piece of equipment! As far as learning, get an instuctional video and maybe the WakwPhysics instructional book by Jeremy Kovac. Relaxing is key. Work at it in a progressive manner... as they say "learn to walk then..." Start with easier tricks then work ur way up. Lastly, try to ride a little switch every time ur out, it'll help ur riding overall.

learn a hs 180 before you learn an S-bend.

Um.. this may seem trivial, but with your new bindings be sure to use either dish soap, binding lube, or barbasol shaving cream to enter them. I tried mine on the first day i got them out of water and without any lube to get in... i had to sit in the bath tub with warm water and pulling like hell to get them out (didn't know about lubes, and also was excited when i had first got them). Painful experience, but lesson well learned. Man I feel like an idiot.
