Things to avoid?
While visiting my uncle we went to a mountain and snowboarded for about a week. That really got me hooked. Right now I plan to rent a little more until I can get money for some equipment. I think I've got a pretty good idea of what I want, but I was wondering if there are any things I should avoid. ie. bad brands, notoriously unreliable parts, etc.
Although I'm pretty sure of what I might be getting I'm always open to suggestions.

I'm 14 years old so it's a safe bet that I will still be growing for a while.
