tough economy means fewer new snowboards this year

it seems from reading these forums that most of you (us) are gear whores and buy all new stuff every friggin year But whatever happened to the notion of being "thrifty" ? In these tough ecomonic times... uncertain times... it seems the S#it can Hit The Fan at any moment.

The euro economy continues to slide... SHTF
Interest rates start rising here.... SHTF
hyper inflation = SHTF
china does something really stupid= SHTF

on and on... so many things can go sideways.

i dont know about you guys, but times are tough so its time to be frugal this winter... no new equipment for me this winter. Heck i have enough snowboards to last until apes take over the world. My focus this winter is to improve my riding skills and enjoy the stuff i already have I already bought my seasons pass along time ago.

How bout you.. ? are you spending like theres no tommorow? business as usual ??
