I have spent a lot of hours for the past 2 months looking for a snowboard that will fit my needs. I have been to 6 trips into the slopes (east coast) and had been using rentals. I'm 5'0, 105lbs, size 6 boots, goofy stance. For my last ride, I rented from a snowboard shop and they gave me a Burton Genie 140 which was pretty good, I think. I know i'm still a beginner but I want a board that I can progress with and I can stick with for a while. My budget would be between 200-400. I have been looking on the following boards as my contenders but if you have more suggestions, I'd appreciate that.
NeverSummer Infinity 142
NeverSummer Onyx 140 (I guess this replaces the Pandora)
Also, I know there's only a few weeks left for this season. Is it better to buy a board now or wait for summer/black friday deals?
Thanks for the help in advance!
