I support local snowboard reps and companies as much as possible, and always try to purchase locally if I can. Don't get me wrong the internet is great for many handy purchases that are just not reasonable to buy locally - every single thing in Best Buy, for example: you can get the upgraded version cheaper with free shipping from the internet, and shopping at Best Buy wont do your local economy any favors. Going to a shop actually supports riders and the very basis for the progression of the sport.

Also I like to break things and then take them back to the store with a great attitude, fingers crossed, but ready to spend more money(recipe for success, sympathy, stickers, swag, hidden discounts, etc). Returning shit on the internet is a pain in the dick.
