Why are you psyched on your gear?
Despite its name the Skunked Ape this board does not stink, it is a hard charging beast of a board complete with Magne Traction, which you need when you spend 75% of you time ripping around on the icy slopes of the Midwest. The Force MC Binding are super light weight and responsive bindings “Built for Doctors and Durg Dealer” (as stated by Johan of C3). Being neither a Doctor or Drug Dealer I don’t know why I love these binding, maybe I just have a thing for carbon fiber. The Burton Driver X are the stiffest snowboard boot that I have ever used and they match responsiveness of the Skunked Ape and Force MC perfectly. As for my park/freeride setup I will be rocking the Rossignol One Mag, with the some super secret Union bindings and Burton Moto boots. It just a perfect setup, soft and playful at slow speeds and responsive and powerful at high speeds.
