You know what thou, snowboarding is a relatively cheap sport. Some of that stuff might be the most expensive version thats available, but if you look at sports like golfing or mountain biking etc it costs a lot more to get top of the line. Mind you snowboarding stuff doesn't last that long.
Oh I completely agree. My Gary fisher was $1100 for a low end one and I golf quite frequently with a group of older guys that my dad plays with. Some of them buy new irons and stuff every year and It's pricy exspecially after your membership. Cheaper courses are close to $1000 with cart and $500+ for walking. I wasn't saying anything was wrong with you buying it. As far as I'm concerned if you have the money go for it, That's what you work for anyways. I was just curious because it was mostly like Burton's new shit with all their tech thrown at it and I new it was all up in price.
