wiredsport.com is a good online dealer. i get my boards and stuff from there.check it out. u can make a snowboard package which would save u money too :P
Thanks! But the snowboards they list are kind of limited. No Burton, K2, neversummer, GNU, Libtech, etc.

Also, what type of board should I get? I know there are freestyle, alpine, all mountain, and freeride boards, right? I've heard I should get a freestyle, because they are more forgiving to beginners. But I don't really plan on doing park. Haha, so which type should I focus on?
