I'd never heard of Sierra before and the boards you listed are totally in my price range, thank you SO much. Last season I lived in Florida, so it's been two years since I've been super into snowboarding, and now that I need upgrades, I'm just like "err..." Sierra and Shred Betties were sooo helpful thank you so much! Any more advice and I am all ears
If I shop online, I like Sierrasnowboard, Evo, and DogFunk. Great prices and shipping. My next online purchase might be from wiredsport though, because the wired guy on this forum seems like a stand up guy. I've heard the Burton Vinyl is a great board, but I've never known anyone who rides one. My ex rides a Burton Lux which is more of a higher end novice board, but she can still rip pretty hard on it. My cousin rides the Forum Craft and absolutely loves it. Both should be around your price range.
