Weight, Height, Boot size ...

And what type of riding do you do or want to do? Park jibbing and rails? Small jumps? Big jumps? Huge steeps with Tree's? Or just a bit of everything?

Im not gonna lie, 300 is a tight budget though considering any decent boot is gonna cost you atleast 125 bucks minimum new.

If 300 is your limit i'd spend 150-200 on a GOOD pair of boots, and then find a decent board/binding combo on craigslist/ebay that is your size and decent condition and go at it...

Snowboards are like cars and lose a lot of value fairly quickly, you should be able to get a fairly decent 2-3 year old board and bindings for 100-150 bucks i'd guess? Just a guess though its been awhile since ive looked.

If you have a store like play it again sports or those types in your area that sell used boards maybe look there as well...
