My friend has been riding a no name crap board for like 2 yrs. Last month I learned to snowboard with a good quality stick and was able to perform better than her within 3 trips. She was pissed, I laughed.

If you plan on sticking to snowboarding, than by all means, get a good board. If it's just riding 1-2x a season, get a low cost board. But even then... I would craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums - or - Kijiji - Post & Search Free Local Classified Ads. that shit before buying a budget board.

Good luck!!
