I haven't posted here since last year! But I recently thought about snowboarding again and now I can't get it out of my head. I'm a 14 y/o girl so to my knowledge I've stopped growing for the most part and so I will probably be getting my first board his year!!!! No more painful, stinky, and uncomfortable rental boots for me
Awww yeahhh... So anyways, I'm going to a somewhat local shop where they sell used and new snowboards and equipment and stuff like that (now I'll get to the point). Even though we heard that they will help fitting the stuff and selecting, what should I keep in mind about quality and not getting ripped off? What equipment should I get new and which should I get used or does it not matter? What board accessories do I need (like a lock and the stomp pad etc. do i need it?)??? THANKS!!!!
